I could use some help identifying this object. It is made from two pieces of leather that have been machine stiched together to form a bulbous body 4 1/2" round with a two inch tab at one end. There is a 5 point star scribed on either side and the number 2 is stamped into the leather on the tab. The numeral is in a font similar to fonts used in the early 20th and late 19th centuries. I stumbled upon this item a while back and have been trying to get information on it since. In the mean time, I'll just keep on stumbling along. Aside from occasionally tripping, it's the only excercize I get lately.
