    Need help identifying reject bin find

    I was dumping my last box of halves and filled the bag. I work at the Credit Union where I dump so we opened the machine to change the bag. I always check the interior reject bin and found this

    First time any of us have found a claw in the coin machine. I included my only keeper from the box to keep the post on topic. Interesting that the curve of the claw almost exactly matches the outer edge of the half. Here are a few more shots of the claw.

    Anyboby here have experience IDing what this was origionally attached to?

    I would start with a dog.

    Or, we could go absurd, and say Eagle Talon.

    It may be better if this goes in the "What Is It" forum.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Yup, I agree "What Is It" Forum... by the way I think it is too big for a dog.

    It may be the illusive 1876-S Griffin Talon DDO

    I'm pretty sure that's a bird talon. My guess is either a red-tailed hawk or a peregrine falcon; both are native to Wisconsin.

    Nice Souvenir.

    Not a black bear it's to thin to be that I'm wanting to say a badger or a porcupine but the fact it goes light to dark from the root makes me think it's from the K-9 family and the fact u can see the quick so much makes me think of a dog

    Thanks for all the suggestions everybody. Quite a range of possibilities. BuffaloBoy, I brought it home because everybody at the CU wanted to know what kind of claw / talon it was. I figured I could find somebody on the net that would know. maverick, it is a nice dump situation. I was friends with the head teller when I got serious into coin hunting. She told me to bring the coins in. After a while the branch manager said I was there so much he might as well put me to work so I took a part-time position there. I like the job and occasionally find some silver or wheat cents.
