    Morroco, Mazunas I think... I may be wrong, this was just my first thought :)
    One thing I'm not sure about is the appearance of a second rim on your coin... I hope someone who knows world coins better will chime in.
    This is what they look like obverse and reverse:

    I have no idea... Soak it more... try acetone, alcohol or even Ezest.... Let us know if more detail shows up. Cheers, RickO

    Any chance you can remove some of the heavy corrosion? Anything on the rev? Do I detect some letters at K8? Good luck. Peace Roy

    This is the best I could do for now after chipping more corrosion off definitely a 5 point star after looking at it closer maybe an old badge? Looks like there was a pin connected on the back at the top

    Okay, definitely not a Morrocan coin, I had no idea it was so large...!

    Looks like it could have been a pin/badge of some kind... Hope some more comes off and leaves a reasonable surface. Cheers, RickO
