    Small Alloy 8 point star with red cross in middle surrounded 16 white stars.

    Hi, I found this today. Seems to be maybe copper. It has letters but cant make out wording. Maybe says Vinces last word. Any idea what this is or symbolizes

    I was thinking a vintage Red Cross badge but the only images of them all have crosses with equidistant legs on the cross....

    I think the 8 point star is more significant somehow. I do not know though...

    Yes, everytime I tried to describe what I found on google, the red cross came forth. Hence, i deseibed it without naming the color of the cross and still got nowhere, except 8 points...means tons of diff things

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I believe it's Masonic; especially with the word 'Vinces' and a red cross.

    Yes, it is a Masonic (Knights Templar) badge as @Mackaydon says. Masons call these things 'jewels'. Note that on the 8 pointed star, the tips of points 2 and 8 are broken. There would have been loops on those tips to suspend it from a scroll plate on which Masonic chapter credentials could be engraved. Originally, it would have looked like this:
