    Lion Head Medallion

    I was back at my neighbors when I should have been prepping for Dorian but I found an interesting decorative piece. To me it looks like it had a ribbon on it for some kind of medal or was attached to leather as an adornment. Could be modern. I found items from early 1800 though today in this yard. Appears to be brass.
    Front is raised and back is recessed.

    It looks kind of like a ribbon or medal.

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

    My first thought was the same as Don's... pocket watch fob.

    Very nice find with the gold gilding still intact,

    Didn't find an answer, sorry. Do believe it's a lion.

    watch fob
    ribbon medallion

    We should also consider horse brass, as someone suggested here. It has some merit ... IDK ?
