I was hunting in a wooded area next to the river. Never seen anything like them? Both numbers were added after they were made. One looks hand engraved and the other doesn't. Any ideas what they are? Also found a 1946 Walker yesterday too at approx 7" in the same area.
Thanks Gary from Oregon.

When I first saw the tags. I thought, Rolls Royce, but dismissed it. Were there any kind of recreational facilities around that area?
Those tags could be locker tags for a swimming pool, golf course, etc.
The Walker is beautiful
Congrats

ATW,

Definitely not the Rolls Royce symbol....someone above mentioned the double RR ranch in his neck of the woods probably more plausible...

I actually managed to find a Rolls Royce long service ring many years ago....I'll post it up for comparison.

Thanks "against the wind" yes I have racked my brain and with the help of the experts here it looks as if they are cattle ID tags.
