    Cool eagle medallion? Any ideas?

    Dug this interesting medal in the town woods. I know nothing about the property's history yet, but I saw lots of stone walls, so I am thinking old farm, maybe late 1800s or early 1900s. I only had an hour, so I walked around randomly to scout and get a feel for the area. I was mostly finding shotgun shell headstamps (early 1900s UMC Co) until I dug this object near a small circle of rocks that I thought might have been an old campsite. It has an eagle with what I think might be an angel holding a halo over its head (unless I am imagining that). There is a letter N underneath. The back has no markings, but looks scored. I was thinking horse rosette, but I don't see any clips. I am not sure of the metal, but am thinking zinc/copper or maybe lead. Any ideas on what this might be? Thanks for looking and for any comments

    Wow, you're good (and fast)! That is definitely the image, though mine does not seem to have the additional lettering by the N, perhaps it wore off or was corroded. As for the back, I don't know what happened to the Napoleon image. Maybe this was a two piece reproduction, and the back half was pried off? No matter what, I am now much more excited about this piece. Thanks for your quick reply. I will leave this open for now to see if anyone else has any ideas, but I think you pretty much solved it. Thanks again!!
