Military?

Hi again everyone. I haven’t been out much since moving about a year ago, but got out yesterday. I found this small disc in an old (late 1860s) military camp. It has S.T. Suttler 25.C stamped on it. As you can see it is a little bigger than a dime and is very thin. Back side is smooth. I also found some bullet brass with F.V.V & Co on it that I found online and dated to 1865-1868. And a two ring fired bullet. Can anyone help to identify the disc, and maybe the two ring bullet too. Thank you!

I couldn't find anything on it in my limited references. Maybe the OP could contact the folks at token catalog and see what they have to say.

There is an S. T. Sutler token listed on the NGC Coin Explorer website as a civil war sutler token, but there is no picture or information. There seems to be quite a bit of information on google about civil war sutler tokens. You might also try posting this on the Findmall Civil War Forum. My guess is that it is either a civil war sutler pay token or a pickers check.
