Default Toy plow blade

Ok so I didn't find this metal detecting but need help. Got this at a garage sale today. Looks like a plow blade for a cast iron toy. I can't find anything about it. Anybody recognize it ?

Something is telling me it's not from a toy. I don't know why.

There was a company called the Hamburg foundry and they made plowes. I believe they were located in Pa. .

I agree, too finely made. Maybe part of a display that showed different types of blades available. Or a salesman's sample type thing. Ironically, I live near Hamburg.

I didn't think it being a sample. I live about 2 hours south of Hamburg. For the size I just assumed it was for a toy.

Looks a lot like a larger plow blade I recently found in Virginia. Mine is labeled "Olson". I don't think yours is from a toy either......

It's part of an ad. Maybe it was on a watch fob, a button, paperweight or other object.

Why could it not be a salesman's "sample"?
