I found this along a river bank in Mass, not far from an old mill foundation. Crude badge I think with a skull and cross bones possibly? Any ideas what this is and what the symbol represents? Thank you

It does look like skull & bones. Too crude for the Yale crowd. Maybe a local secret society?
What does the back look like? Was it a lapel pin?
While I have aimed in my postings to be irenic and conciliatory, rather than polemic, I have yet endeavored to set forth the
truth, let it favor or impugn whom it might. Any notice of misrepresentations or mistakes occurring in these prose will be most thankfully received
by the author.

Smooth back, was not a button or pin....people in the area I showed it to have the same thoughts as you...some sort of society. Thanks for commenting.

Have you checked it out closely under a good magnifying glass to make sure it is whole as pictured? Definitely no signs of rust from a pin on the back, or any evidence of a loop being broken off the top or anything? Can we get a photo without the added interpretation by you on it? I can see what your referring to but it is a little blurry when I expand the photo.
