    It sure could be, but I'll have to defer on this one.

    Could it be a sheath for dagger? I've seen those little cylinders on the bottom on Persian things. Mostly jewelry.

    No...those are crimping holes...I think there would have been leather strips in each cylinder.

    Just exploratory thinking:
    It seems to me as though the metal strap may have been a u-shape, and the attachments at each end were rotated the opposite way from shown and were actually one piece originally. At that point it would be like a mesh watch fob, except if the mesh is connected where it's shown that wouldn't be where I would expect it to connect on a watch fob.
    Whatever the thingy is that is attached through the hole on the one end should be oriented so that the attachment pin sticking through is bent so as to be in the groove on the back side of the hole. And it would seem that there would have been a matching piece doing the same on the other end... If that makes any sense.

    Maybe the others know, but I don't but where/what part of the world was this found, if it is a sword hanger or similar military eccoutrement the location would possibly help in the research?

    Nova Scotia, Canada. The site started as French but was taken over by the British in the 1740s and stayed British...
