    Hi JOE319, Looks like a Chinese Cash Coin to me, specifically from the K'ai-yuan coinage, usually attributed to T'ANG KAO TSU, was cast almost continuously throughout the 300 years of T'ang rule, with the only major change the addition of mint marks in AD 841. The reference gallery at calgarycoin.com will see you right for ID.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers
