Found: "E"

Found this with a Junkyard Companion today. I was searching the entire day for letters, and found only one. It's about 1/4 the size of my hand, and I'm pretty sure it's some kind of steel. I used a wire wheel brush to shine it up in about 5 minutes.























Does anyone happen to recognize this E? Maybe it's a long shot, but it surely was not alone on a product. I looked pretty hard to try and find its buddies, but with no further luck.
The rounded edges reminds me of Volvo's font. (By the way, does anyone have a font name from the old Volvo ads? This one.)

Oh, and here's an extra hint at how this may have been mounted.. It looks like a small nail hole or something.. It's got some dirt in it.

Are you sure it's an E? It could be an M.

I'm NOT sure it's an E, but it is a much handsomer E than it is an M, so I pretend that way.
Good point though -- for a found letter, I shouldn't be so confident of its identity.
