Metal scarf slide with large metal eagle mounted to ring / Unknown

Curatorial Remarks

This scarf slide is not particularly peyote, but it may have been worn to a peyote meeting. This is an eagle, not a water bird. This is an American eagle, and it may be a political symbol and could have been worn by a veteran.
