This is a Revolutionary Period coin of Chihuahua issued under the command of Pancho Villa for the 'Army of the North'. Villa invaded the New Mexico Territory prompting an eventual counter attack by 'Gen. 'Black Jack" Pershing. Villa was able to recruit soldiers because he was paying them in these silver coins while other groups were paying in worthless paper. You will find a marvelous variety of coins listed under Mexico - Revolution 1910-1917 in Krause Mishler "Standard Catalog of World Coins" (SCWC).
Constitutionalist Army during the Revolutionary period. The state of Chihuahua was under the leadership of Pancho Villa. These are collectible by the various varieties available. They were issued by Pancho Villa to help raise money for the Mexican Revolution. The the Army of the North Peso elsewhere in the Moneta Museum, see link below.

See USA tokens for examples of so-called dollars that Pershing's soldiers carried on them and tokens used at garrison stores during "The Border Wars" against Pancho Villa.
