I have an item here that I am having a tough time identifying.
It is a 2"x 4" thin metal plate (tin?) that has the following script stamped so deeply into it that parts of it look like a stencil:
B & M R R
The name of the individual is obvious, Treveskyn is a town in Pennsylvania near Bridgeville, and the B&M RR was the Bridgeville and McDonald branch of the PRR.
Only thing I can't figure out is what the item's purpose was. Employee ID, rail pass carried by a miner, tag for a trunk or tool box?
Has anyone come across anything like it?
Thanks very much in advance
