No. This is a bit heavier than that.

That's a gear, not a pulley. Looks to be about 6 inches Outside Diameter.
I've got chain drive gears that size and larger on the conveyors and cotton bale presses at work.

I believe, but am not quite certain, that the diameter to be somewhat larger than 6".

A pulley has a smooth outside rim. A gear drives another gear. A sprocket drives a chain.

Okay, I was guessing that the board behind it was about 2" thick, so 6" was a ballpark figure.
And the way I learned it, a sprocket was a special class of gear, but that's a quibble.

So it's larger than 6" diameter. Is it a gear or a sprocket?

It is a different sort of a special type of gear (in other words, neither).

I have several lapel pins that look like that but they are much smaller and made of gold and adorned with various gems. It the Rotary symbol.

But I am sure that's not the answer you were looking for. There appears to be a lot of soot on it. So I am going to guess that it's from a steam powered locomotive.
