I picked this up at a relic show yesterday, it’s a Canadian 20 cent piece turned into a pin, the front is clearly hand etched but we’re having trouble with the design. Also, the rim around the front seems to be professionally etched, but the symbol seems to be hand engraved. Is it possibly a Cannon, and the loop part is the fuse, and the tool below is a ramrod? Or is it a more specialized design for a certain trade? Any thoughts? The date on the coin is also 1858.
