Mystery Artifact

This was dropped off at the museum by someone who is wanting to find out more about it.

Obverse side
Reverse side

Here is what we can tell so far. On either side around the rim is a dried epoxy type of glue, indicating it might have been a-fixed between two other materials. We looked at the inscription under magnification, and on the obverse side (designated heads on a coin) we found what appears to be the head of a bird, including the eye, and the incomplete word apparently meant to spell “Eagle Eye” over the bird’s head and “See All,” under its head. On the reverse side (designated tails on a coin) there is a less distinct bird head with a white or cream paint between the head and the first concentric circle. Both heads are drawn within two concentric circles. If you can shed light on this mystery, please contact the museum at 270-422-1823 or stop by 281 Oaklawn on Friday, Saturday or Sunday between 12:00 noon and 4:00 p.m.
