    Help identifying coin

    Found this in my house and I'm pretty certain it's old and foreign but after several Google searches I couldn't come up with an exact match. Any help is much appreciated.

    It's actually a Burmese coin from the 1940s-1960s. Burma (now called Myanmar, in Southeast Asia) used that scalloped shape for its small-denomination copper-nickel coinage from 1949-1966, as far as I can tell. Hope that helps!
