Oh, I know the origin and what it is...I was just checking to see if anyone else knew.

I've had it since the fifties. It's a game token from the board game, Monopoly, and is about a half-inch long, perhaps smaller. Yes, cast metal.

If you're curious, the photograph was made with an Olloclip macro lens mounted on my iPhone 5s, photographed using available light only. Except for the "scratches" on the image, no digital manipulation was done to the photograph.

: Looks like a toy version of the '31 Miller. Cast metal, I assume?

: Noel Barrett or Gary Sohmers, the toy experts on ARS, could probably tell you about the origin.
