Found this the other day at the old tavern site. This old tavern was there for many years it looks. You just never know what you might find next.

You found a nice piece of history.
"In 1907 the Toronto Automobile Club and clubs representing Hamilton, Ottawa and Kingston formed the Ontario Motor League (OML) with the purpose of helping automobile owners to lobby governments, as opposition to the automobile was extensive at the time." -per Wiki.

Neat looking medallion / token.

I would think it's a membership badge and (if of appropriate size) intended to be affixed to an automobile radiator grille. There looks to be some traces of enamelling, which is usual, and it's probably 1920s-1930s. Nice find.
