Purchased this with badge at a flea market in a box with two red cross pins and a private purchase wrist compass. Have had no luck researching it. Hand made and engraved about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Any help would be appreciated.

It would appear to be an UA DI for any number of units numbered 258.

 

I cannot copy and paste a link, but if you google Unit Citation and Campaign Participation Credit Register DA Pam 672-1 - or search the forum, it may be here, you can research the units.

There was a 258th Aero Squadron in WW1. The triangular imagery of this badge doesn't seem to correlate but the circus reference is equally obscure. Perhaps a particular flight within the squadron? The workmanship could suggest WW1 era - possibly made as a watch fob?
