found this odd metal item when exploring a woodlot that was used as a brush dump /illegal dump years ago . it was in some leaves and barely visible , many items appear to have been dumped in the general area like old appliances and such so could of came off one of them or an old vehicle ?

it has a lion on both sides , a castle with 3 crests and a black background .

on the back there is some numbers and a small mark that says " general Detroit "
