    Possible Revolutionary relic?

    I found this with a Garrett CX III at 14-16 inches. The site is a former depot/fort controlled by both sides during the Revolution. The pictures below are after HEAVY cleaning. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    It looks like the end of a strap hinge. HH

    I'm thinking the broken end of a turnbuckle.

    My money would be on the hinge strap as well. Cool nonetheless! HH!

    Just a guess. But could it be an old key hole cover...........for a pretty big key?
