Detector(s) used
Minelab Sov. Elite 5", 8" & 10" coils. EXP II 8" & 10" coils with inline Sunray pin pointer. AT Pro 8" & 10" Coils, Equinox 600 10" and 5" coils.
Thought this was just a scrap piece of copper and tossed in my scrap metal stuff.
Then I realized it was more.. Thinking maybe a book marker?? It's fairly thin.
The dime for size.
Thanks

Tim

I would think the Swastika would make it prior to 1941 as after that it wasn't used for a good luck symbol so it is pretty old and where the bend was I see two Indians with a canoe maybe it has something to do with the book Song of Hiawatha?

I would guess it to be a remnant of what was once a bracelet. A simple one that wrapped around a youngster's wrist with a little bending. Here is a sterling one that I found a while back, and only half of it was there. But notice the same rounded end and it too was bent close to the end.
