Old horse or stagecoach plate? from junk sale
Not really any easier to read in person. Neat enough to try and get an ID I figure.

My guess is that it is some sort of id tag off of machinery.

I thought the last word might be "Ludlow" - the town in England? There are a few in the US too.
Can't make out the first name though....does it end in "UGH"?

You must be thinking something like __orough?

I think I make out the top name as "Gough". The name Gough has a lot of citations in search when combined with Ludlow.
Ludlow being in Shropshire, UK.
