It has a crown on the back of it....along with some ornate designs, although they are faint. I am about to drop the pics into this thread, and hopefully the pic of the back will show the crown (which makes me think that it is of British manufacturing.

As I thought, I put too much light on the relic. But....from what I have shown, can anyone give me a clue as to what it is? It looks like it would have hung from a belt. But I'm not even sure about that. Any help....any help at-all.....will be greatly appreciated. The crown and ornate design would be visible in the bottom pic....on the 'back' of the relic. This relic was red (and, still is) but I soaked it for two weeks in Ballistol (mineral oil based gun cleaner). I was experimenting with it on old brass. It didn't do much.

Looks like some sort of WW1 piece Kevin.. maybe off a belt rig..

In the 40s and 50 the hunters used to use WW1 surplus alot..

I find lots of old WW1 stuff back in the woods at times around here...slings and buckles and such..

Just a thought

This could be possibly how it was lost.

I live in one of these counties,,,,and have talked to old folks who remember the troopers on maneuvers.

I have found general service buttons,,,lost by them,,I think.
