A representation of the drummer's badge by the look of it (although yes, it does look rather like a cotton reel)..

It is supposed to be a drummer's arm badge as mentioned, but it looks as if it is unfinished with missing details.

I have one the same design but with a shaped backing.
Also one of a similar basic design.

Thankyou for all the above comments, I am not convinced that it is an unfinished 'Drummers' badge due to its size although I can see the similarities. For me the jury is still out on this one.

Thanks for looking.
