    There is too much paint on it to tell. Could be a casting, a forging, a welded assembly or machined from a large enough bar.--Meltedmetal

    Default Wow...

    Never have I seen something so simple be treated like it needs to be sent to NASA for analysis...!
    It is punched out of flat plate or bar.
    You can see the die marks on the edge...or punch marks, however you decide which one leaves them.

    They cut from plate not punch if they are old it was oxyfuel. Newer ones are made using plasma or laser.

    The discs are burned from plate. Either oxy/acet or plasma. My guess the ones in the pic are oxy/acet. With a burning machine doing a large qty. the cost would be cheap. To make just a few it wouldn't be profitable for resale.

    Today plasma would most likely be used.
