I found this in the corn field today where I had previously found the 1875 Indian Head Cent. It is heavy brass.

Dave (Full Metal Digger) suggested that it might be some kind of leather strap buckle. That seems logical.

I haven't cleaned it yet but I think it will have a nice patina on it.

Any guesses?
