    Thats what I suspect and I'm trying to nail it down in the "what is it?" section. Don't know if I'll ever be able to definitively say.

    think difference in the ring from horse tack is horse tack usually has a seam
    Casper, thats a very interesting idea! While the ring seems slightly on the small side for horse tack, the pictures I found online of carousel rings look about the right size. Considering they came out of dispensers like the one in your photo, they must be a fairly standard size. Mine is 1.5 inches in diameter. Any chances you remember the diameter of the one you found?

    This auction says 1.5 inches!! I think Capser nailed it.

    The providence on that one accounts for the price.

    I thought I put it in one of my display cases - know I kept it - now I have to find it
    but if you found in an older park - they probably had small carnival there come into town and definitely had a merry go round
    I think they stopped doing that cause kids were whacking their hands/arms or falling off trying for them
    Motto = "I try to hit where others cant or others wont "
