the top one...the front looks like a normal worn down penny...however the back is nothing I have seen before...SAM diagonal down the middle and the numbers...is that the year? I dont mean to sound dumb about all this.... but I really am lost :cheesysmile: the other 2 items are buttons I am guessing...but dont know what...Thanks again for any help.

the top is in fact a lincoln penny that someone probably turned into tag for some reason or another , the bottom left is a great seal U.S Army button they were used from 1902 to present and the last one on the bottom right is a military collar insignia (probably Army as well) .

I have seen a penny like that before, kids use to make them in school (name and birth year) many years ago but that most likely got stopped. Neat finds though...
