Silver badge/button

Post by erm1969 »

Hi, I found this silver badge/button on pasture today with the Equinox 800. It has text around the outside, the only clear words are "Picadilly Orton". The back is not a normal button type, but has a square section copper pin (broken). Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Cheers Ewan

I think that it may be a Warwickshire miners union token or something fairly similar. ::g

It's an end cap from a dressage whip. ::g

I wasn't sure if it was ORTON or ORION.

I'm no expert on whips so it could well be! ::g
