Found these today, maybe someone knows what the eagle piece is? Found in Southern Colorado. It has writing around the head!

The eagle piece looks like a watch fob. The head looks like an early Abraham Lincoln profile with his large ears and beard.

Thanks for the posts, the head piece popped out while cleaning it. I glued it back. In a few days when I get home, I'll try to read the words around the head.

Thanks, I just learned it is a Miraculas Medal, sometimes they were buried on purpose. I need to read up on this. Thanks for the post!!
