    Gold for the money...silver for the pleasure...copper for the history.

    I was going to say it's in a bezel as a necklace but Jewelryguy's answer of a belt buckle makes more sense because of the weight of it.

    You can probably see the points of attachment on the side of the metal.

    I agree with Jewelerguy and Petespockets. It was either used as a belt buckle, or a bezel. Look on the back for markings from some sort of attachment that would have held it on, like a mark for a pin or solder marks for a buckle.

    Nice find, agree it was most likely attached to a belt buckle.
