The picture shows a view of both sides of this 1841 United States Hard Times Token. In the mid 1800s were times when metals for coinage was scarce many private companies had minted their own. The coin is copper and is believed to have been used in the place of a large U.S. cent. The coin seems to be making a comparison on the two sides. On one side the date is 1837 and it pictures a ship wreck. I can't quite make out the name on the ship (_ _ _ R _ MENT). This side reads:

VAN BUREN
METALLIC CURRENCY
1837

The other side shows the U.S.S. Constitution ship with full sails and it reads:

WEBSTER
CREDIT CURRENCY
1841

It measures 1-1/8" wide and It is dark but it is in excellent condition as pictured.
