    Hi all

    Here's a 'mystery' prop piece which I would love to ID - does anyone recognise it?

    Indiana Jones? The Mummy maybe...?

    All help appreciated.

    Regards

    No idea.

    It's nothing I recognize from The Mummy or Indiana Jones.

    Looks like a fish — or a clasp or something.

    I have to ask: What makes you think it's a prop?

    Really from chatting to the guy I received these from - another member here. He received a set of 4 of them along with a copy of the Book of the Dead, I believe, but is as much in the dark as we are re. their origin.

    :confused

    Even though it might not help much, any chance of a clear picture? If your camera has a macro setting, use that. Take the picture from about a foot away, zoom in and use macro. Should help a bit in getting a clearer photo.

    I wonder if that's supposed to be snake skin?

    Perhaps part of a costume?

    I hadn't considered that possibility - yeah, could be I guess.

    It looks vaguely Egyptian in design to me.

    Maybe an award pin as seen on some sort of military dress uniform?

    what if your guy asked the guy he got them from what they are?

    Which movie is the book of the dead from?

    It looks like it might be a clasp design for the front of a jacket or tunic.

    Hmm - could it be part of one of the costumes from Army of Darkness then?

    Its part of a book of the dead casting. That one of the 4 feet that hold the buzzard beaks to the front cover of the book. Those sides would go around the back of the book. I would guess probably from a different cast than mine which are from wakal.
