My Bryan Money Discovery Piece

I purchase my first piece of Bryan Money and I can't find it in the catalog or supplement. So I show it to Fred, and it is now Schorn-834b:

    Nice! This is an underappreciated area of the hobby for sure. Ripe for discoveries like yours. Congrats!

    Congratulations on the discovery, but that is one rough-looking token. It looks cast for sure, maybe of lead or tin?

    @JBK These were almost all cast in lead or "pot metal." It didn't hold up that well, and the OPs token is fairly representative of the condition of most Bryan Money

    FWIW, it's a stretch to call this a token. I can't be sure of the size of the OP's piece, but these are typically 3 1/2 inches in diameter or larger.

    Medal? Medallion?

    This thing is most likely the size of a coaster.
    You can literally put your drink on these Byan medals. Though I wouldn't recommend it.
