Help with I.D.

Hit an old foundation I found in an area I sometimes hunt. Ended with up 11 wheat pennies but was disappointed that I didn't find any silver. From what I can see they range in dates from the 1920's to 1944. The dates are really hard to make out. I also found a few other things below.

The first was a US pin. Does anyone have any idea what it is. I am thinking some type of uniform pin.



Next is some type of medallion or keychain.




Here is the rest of what I brought home.

Re: Help with I.D.

Cool nice finds!

The US pin is from a class A army uniform. I have some from my class A's and my dads and grandfathers.

Oh yeah........I'm not sure how long ago they started using them and the more I think about it they may have been worn on BDU's in my dads time.

The medallion is cool but I have no idea what it is.

That medalion looks like it has an Aztec design possibly.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Help with I.D.

I checked every area possible via the net.and the only thing i can come up with as to what it might be is maybe something to do with the Aztec or Mayan Sun Gods,this one has got me stumped.
