Default Silver QV Crown

Hi All
Any idea what this could be, it has 2 loops which look like they might be for connecting a chain. The name on the back is (?)ORAK SILVER. Maybe Zorak or Lorak or possibly even just a ding in the wrong place. I thought maybe a Malay connection with that ?ORAK name. Beautifully made piece.

I believe it is the silver crown worn on an Orange Order collarette. Google Orange Order silver crown and you should get a few hits.

I was going to suggest some kind of fraternal order.

Some items like this are solid, cast pieces and sometimes struck and soldered to a separate piece.

The two small sweat holes tell me that yours is hollow and in the latter class.
