I just know you'll all know what this is, and despite puzzling over it for days and scouring the old Interweb, I haven't got a Scooby-doo!
I have some guesses though. It is 8cm long, and just over 1cm across. (The coin is a UK £1 coin). It has a bit on the back (I don't know what it's called) that I'm guessing hooks into something like a pocket and it has the word "NATIONAL" stamped into the top. The inverted commas are there too.
I'm guessing it's a gentleman's accessory, maybe something to hang from a suit pocket? I poked about inside with a cotton bud (Q-Tip to my trans-Atlantic friends) and it came out dusty but not dirty. The inside is lined with little spikes so my guesses are its either a flower holder or a pen holder. Or maybe it's an Iron Maiden for 'The Little People' that live under my skirting boards? Haha.
Other than those ideas the only "NATIONAL" links I could think of were our National Health Service (NHS) or The Grand National (Big, tough annual horse race).
Come on, put me out of my misery...please?
