if you find out, please let ME know because I found one of them last year in an old churchyard and still don't know what it is.

Probably dropped by Norsemen as they transported the Templar treasure and Runestone to Minnesota in the 1300's.

I recently found a very corroded medallion about the same size with what appears to be an eagle on one side. But my guess is that the one I found is made of aluminum.
