    Can we get a picture of the back of it? That will make it easier to determine what it is - of course there is a chance that someone will already know by the picture.

    ALL finds are interesting to those who truly enjoy our hobby.

    I have a Mongolian Death Worm for a pet.

    There have been many of these "E" items posted here and, as of yet they have not been positively identified.

    Well that's not what I was hoping it would look like. I thought maybe it was a type of fastener for leather or another fabric.

    Don't know if it makes any difference but that E could be construed as an M, W, or 3 depending on orientation. Just trying to think outside the box.

    The edges of the disc are so thin it reminds me of a button the center of the back is broken off. It is like a uniform button but not necessarily military. It maybe modern. There is a utility easement next to the place.

    That thought ran through my head too but, looking at the other posts of a similar item, they look like an "E".

    Dunno for sure but it looks like the center of it is made to "push" down into it.

    My odd E was found in north Ala. I wonder about the context of the finds. Nearby was a military base from 1930 until present, a spanish american war camp a few hundred yards away and some civil war drops too.
    Has anyone considered a hat pin as the purpose.
