Tool for making stamps ?

Hello,

what do you think about this round medal?

It is not magnetic, it looks like it is made out of cast iron.
The diametre is 5 cm and thickness is 5 mm.

Could this be a tool for making rubber stamps?

best regards
Andreas

Could be. See if you can make a stamp out if it with wax or the euro version of silly putty.

Andreas,

Master dies would always be single sided, not double sided.

Thanks for the answers.

Sounds plasible Marc, that a die is only single sided.

So, it seems to be a table medal, a souvenir or something like that.
But the structure of engraving is very fine and detailed. A lot of work.

Could it be a kind of police seal?

Christophe,

Not Master dies, which are always showing the positive side. The reversed dies are the working (or striking) dies.
