Good evening everyone
Had a good hunt today. This was the relic of the day for me . While it looks a little religious maybe , I think it is actually military ? Has NS Meyer , inc New York on the back . I have seen NS MEYER , inc New York on many military items over the years . Does anyone recognize the logo ? Seems to me to look possibly Army? And help much appreciated

The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the 63d Antiaircraft Battalion on 30 January 1924. It was redesignated for the 63d Antiaircraft Artillery Gun Battalion on 30 October 1951. The insignia was redesignated for the 63d Antiaircraft Artillery Battalion on 22 May 1956. --per Wiki
Comparing each of these designs to yours will give you the era.
