Went to the farm today to the farm next to the barn i found this. I think military metal but haven't a clue where to search next. Any help greatly appreciated¬†

Is that text on the reverse of the piece? If so, there's probably a clue on what the item is, within it. Or, someone might be able to i.d. it based on the figure on the front of the item. Are there any maker marks?

Whatever it is, it's SWEET!

Yours is obviously different, but there's some similarities to the one, below. Namely, the figure on the front and rifle. So, as Steveo said, a sharpshooter or rifleman badge seems to make the most sense, but that's only a guess.

Need more info to go on. I see the hat on the rifleman, and that makes me think WWI soldier. I agree with others that it's probably not military though.

If it were mine, I'd be scrubbing up the back where it looks like there's some wording and trying to see what I could see with the loupe.

I'm also assuming the disc on the back is molded in as opposed to soldered on, but it looks like it might be a separate piece?

Here is a couple close ups Nick. The medal is ine solid piece and is very small writing but still can't make anything out. Also i Googled national guard medals and there is the same man as the medal i found. But i got nowhere¬†
