As a guess, I would think it came off a trophy or plaque?

It is from the winning trophy in Super Stock. I have one for a class win in 1971 and 1972

Bingo. Bill Barr sent this to me recently. It's from the trophy awarded to Al Joniec for his win at the 1968 Winternationals.

Very cool.  The things that people keep for so many years never ceases to amaze me.  I've never been a "keeper", and have left many good things get away as a result.  I'm sure someone is going to be ecstatic to get that piece.
