It looks like a couple of scrap lead pieces were mushed together and then as a whole it was smashed over something that had raised lettering.
Does the font / letters look familiar to anyone? " owne"
I suspect this is only part of the whole name.
Its about the size of a U.S. quarter.
What is the name from? A large button? A tool handle? Car part?

I the name Lowney....possibly associated with the chocolate company......mmmm cherry blossoms!

Great ID! Maybe it is a piece of something like this candy spoon?

I see the partial word 'OWNE', possibly short for 'OWNER'? :icon_scratch:
My first thought was a home-made bale seal of sorts.

Years ago, I found a couple of small lead pieces on a c1820 site, god only knows for what purpose these were used.

Sorry all, been away from the computer for a minute. WOAW!! Awesome job to you all. No doubt that is a positive ID. The "L" and "W" really jump out in the mirror image. Thank you.
I will edit this post into the solved section.
