1.7 g, 18 mm

I know it is probably Arabic "al-a", but it is more fun to imagine peg-legged soldiers and poison-dart-shooting pygmies.

The lower picture shows Michael Jackson doing the moonwalk in the big shoes he needed after he stepped into an ant's nest. The upper picture is an aircraft life vest, which is under your seat but you never took the trouble of actually locating it.

This is Cohen 999, a Wodstoock beer token commemorating Glenn Miller. :D
