    Smile Brass Tag Eyeball Find in a Layer of Ash

    Nothing terribly exciting here but...

    I spied a layer of ash in a hillside cut near the foundation of a long gone post office. The ash layer was in the top 6-8 inches. Adjacent to this location in rural PA Click image for larger version.

ID:	1768291was once a railroad siding (Erie RR and later D&H) and a granary. Lying exposed was this quarter-sized disc with a hole in it. A bit of cleanup revealed a beaded design around the perimeter on both sides and the number 77 stamped on one side.

    Any ideas? Is this a brass key fob for a room key?
    My guess is a cow or a cattle tag?
    Thanks for looking!

    Thank you, Digger! I think it's pretty cool, even if it didn't turn out to be a holed quarter or a love token.

    I found it's mate at an old Woolen Mill site last year Nick.
    I'm still thinking it's a tool tag.

    You could be right, Dave. I'm guessing that there were a lot more tools out there than cows!
