Does anyone know what this is, its about 2.5across? It appears to be an emblem, if so what's the brand?

Thanks!

It looks like a old branding Iron. It's custom to the owner. Do not know whom it belongs.

I agree with Ana...it appears to be the outer end of a branding iron. The attachment for the handle is still on the back, but the long handle is obviously gone. Each rancher had their own branding iron "emblem", that was used to burn into the hides of cattle and horses that they owned. It was a definitive way to prove ownership of ranch animals that often grazed on open land with other rancher's animals.
