Since the only U.S. coin made in 1923 with an Indian head is a nickel, and it does not have an eagle on it, I have to assume you have some kind of privately manufactured token or medal.

These are generally only worth a couple dollars, unless they contain a significant amount of precious metal, like gold or silver.

You may try checking your local library for a book about U.S. tokens after 1900. You may be able to find out what it is you have and what it's worth.

"Indian Dog"

A Hunter in his wandering for game fell among the back settlements of Pennsylvania and on account of the bad weather, sought refuge at the house of a Planter whom he met at the door. He was refused admission. Being both hungry and thirsty he asked for a bit of bread and a cup of cold water but the answer to every appeal was: You shall have nothing here, get gone you "INDIAN DOG".

Some months later, the same Planter lost himself in the woods. After a wary day of wandering, he came to an Indian cabin, into which he was welcomed. On asking the way and the distance to the settlement and finding that it was too far to think of going that night, he asked if he could remain. Very cordially they replied that he was at liberty to stay and that all that they had was at his service. They gave him food and made a bright fire to cheer and warm him and supplied him with a clean deer skin for his couch and promised to conduct him the next day on his journey.

The next morning the Indian and the Planter set out together through the forest. When they came in sight of the White Man's dwelling the Indian about to leave turned to his companion and said "Do you not know me?" The White Man was struck with Horror that he had been so long in the power of one whom he had so inhumanely treated and expected now his revenge. But on beginning to make excuses, the Indian interrupted him saying "When you see a poor Indian fainting for a cup of cold water, don't say again, Get gone you INDIAN DOG.", and turned back to his hunting grounds which best deserved the appellation of a Christian "and to which will it most likely be said in as much as unto you have done it the least of these you have done it unto me."
