Kind of like a dog tag.  It's stamped first line: J.B. BOWDEN BM1/C second line: AMPHIB. FORCE third line: INLAND "X"

 

WWII?  Invasion Forces?  Purpose?  Cool piece.  Any ideas? It measures 2 1/16 inches wide and 3/4 inch tall.

 

Thanks.

I have some of these and have always thought they were a key tag for a vehicle, locker, etc. 

 

Good luck
