Hey, it’s all good. The surfaces are 100% copper.

Ok, I'll play - farthing sized token catalogued as Middlesex Spence D&H 1095a, the obverse combining the head of a devil with that of the Prime Minister William Pitt, the reverse refers to the Seditious Meetings Act of 1795, commonly referred to as the Gagging Act.  Provenance to Francis Cokayne which is about as good as it gets.  Our host graciously graded it as 66RB.

Even after all my years of collecting I still make a few buying mistakes.  :(

I started a colorful 1957 (birth year) Proof Set and purchased this coin. Wasn't a good image and the coin has numerous flaws:
