Hello everyone, this past weekend when I was relic hunting with my buddy Geoff I found a solid copper type of ornament or something.
It is 5 inches long and the middle is 1/2 wide. It has a SOL COPPER stamp on the back with a small box in between the SOL and Copper.

That's an interesting piece Tony. Looks like a solid copper (SOL COPPER) bracelet with a mounting box for a stone, maybe turquoise or a mood stone. If it's old it may be something like art nouveau or if newer maybe one of those bracelets that are supposed to help with arthritis.

It could be a bracelet as Shade said, or it may even be a hair beret. I've found several similar pieces, and all were bent under a few times, with only the decorative front showing, which is how women would hold them in their hair. Bracelet or beret (or anything else), it's a nice relic of the past Yes

Thanks Shade and Joe. It does look like a box for a stone of some type in the center.
Yeah bracket is probably right, just wrap I around your wrist and it's on.
Thanks again

Thanks Zach, yeah it probably is older due to the patina being green. It's been there awhile.

Clad, really? A solid copper 5 inch bracelet from a gumball machine, I guess it's possible.

Thanks for looking

Not a recent machine but 35 years ago I can still recall seeing them in the machines along with rings and my mother saying you don't want those they will turn your skin green!
