    That would be a 1794 but it doesn’t match any British coin I know of.
    Perhaps the dimension and weight may help narrow it down.

    That looks more like Liberty. It’s definitely not George III. The only way it could be British is if it’s a Conder token.

    It looked kind of like Washington but doesn't seem to match any of the Washington pieces from the time, either.

    Probably a low-ball condor token.

    This was my thought. Perhaps a Conder token. Very many were dated 1794.

    Does it have any trace of a lettered edge?

    Same coin but different obverse die. Note different position of "4" in date, the first near drapery, the second more distant.

    Many (36 million) of this type were minted. Listing says "billon" but look more like copper or bronze.
