    Proud great-great grandson of three Confederate soldiers: John Meredith Crutchfield who served with the 60th Virginia, Maurice Coffey, & John McGann who both served with the 51st Virginia. Grandpa Crutchfield and Grandpa Coffey were both wounded and both served time in Yankee prisons.

    My first thought was a stirrup. Then I noticed the paper clip and figgered it wasn't big enough to a stirrup.

    A large zipper pull?

    Could be. I was leaning toward a wagon or harness piece of some type.

    I'm going with Cudamark and guess a cargo tie down. Found one like that and it was missing the anchor. Pretty old though.

    Judging by how long the bolts are, it was probably in wood, That narrows it down. I think it was the part to a wagon.

    Creskol has weighed in and opined that he thinks it's "a check buckle off of a pack saddle" and he is "willing to bet that it is Civil War era or before. I am not sure that particular style was used post war, as its function was replaced by a more sophisticated cinch style buckle about that time."
