British (colour, not color). While it is tempting to see a 44 logo. I think the piece was meant for suspension, so the side with the logo is upside down and the logo is db. There is actually a handbag brand DB, for Dooney and Bourke. The logo is nowhere in sight, but even today, they decorate their handbags with a metallic tag with their brand name. I think this was once attached to a zipper or handbag lock.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Yes, I agree with you.No medal, no token, ... I didn't see the piece carefully.
Many thanks.
