    Possibly part of a buckle. I'd guess around 1900-1910.

    I really don't think it is a belt buckle. The head is orientated wrong for a typical belt buckle.
    Also, the back doesn't look like it would have attached to a belt.

    I appreciate the thoughts and insight. Thank you.
    The mystery in my eyes continues.

    Yup .. half of a two piece sash buckle. The other half would have had a hook that would mate up with the loop on yours.

    It probably would have looked something like this:
