This is the only semi interesting stuff i found in 4 hours on a farm. The thimble has either a cursive L or G. Just wondering if anyone knew the brand or sonething. It broke as soon as I touched it. Then the keyhole thing idk not that cool but thought id see if maybe its something.

The keyhole thing is half of a wreath and tongue belt buckle. It could be military or a ladies dress belt. Need a better pic.
There are a number of thimble collector web pages out there. Check them out.

the thimble looks clean, check inside for a sterling mark.

The thimble number '9' means a circumference of 2 and 1/8th inches at the base but I don't see the cursive letter(s) you refer to.

Its one cursive letter on the next circle over from the sterling 9. I couldnt get it to show up in pictures i took i think it is either a capital G or an L. Think im leaning more towards the L. Wish i could get a pic.

If the letter on the thimble is on the outside of the thimble it is probably the original owners initial. Most thimbles are marked inside on the top with the makers mark.
