Physical Description:

Material: Unknown non-metallic porcelain-like material with a magnetic metal pin set in it.

Weight: approximately .1 oz.

Condition: Good. The non-metallic material is broken and the pin is bent. The pin has a small glob of metal at the unattached end possibly indicating that it was welded or soldered to something.

Discussion: This appears to be an internal component from some piece of lightweight technology. The scallops may be detents for a rotating cam that was part of some kind of variable adjustment.
