Border War during the Mexican Revolution, circa 1916, involving Pancho Villa.It is brass, and measures about 12mm in diameter.
The obverse depicts a U.S. soldier firing a rifle, surrounded by cactus.
The reverse has the Lord's Prayer.
Tokens like these were given to loved ones who served in the military during the mid-1910s, including after the U.S. entry into WWI. The Border War lasted from about 1910 to 1919 and featured the pursuit of Pancho Villa by General Pershing's forces into Mexico in 1916-17.
A rare version of a "soldier's token".
