This will be my 3rd posting but no one can tell me what they are, thought I would try again. These are pics of what I am inquiring about. I actual bought these from old farmstead place in SE Nebraska. The son's were selling items from there fathers farmstead, he was 95 and had been collecting items all his life. These were in a barn buried under other items. I had many inquires off without any luck? The Nebraska State Historical Society and reveiwing with several people came back with this thought -
"I’m sorry to say we’re all still stumped. They don’t look like anything we’ve ever dug up from an archeological site here in Nebraska. One coworker thinks they could be napkin rings from some kind of import store."
Where I found them I am not thinking that is what they are???
They are approx 1-3/8" tall x 1-1/4" wide and the inside dia is 3/4". The impressions are embedded in the pieces and not applied on. They have the look and feel of stone. Thanks for looking and hope someone can figure our what they really are and sovle the mystery? Driving me crazy not knowing!!
