    Looks like a leather strap adornment. You might be correct. Any makers mark or stamp on the back? Maybe upload a couple more pics. Congrats

    They're used on a lot of different leather objects from hat bands to belts & bridals. Google up Tandy leather (easiest & quickest) and you'll see some examples in their catalog. You mentioned your uncle had a working team I think. Most folks I've had contact with don't put show tack on except for shows so I think it'd be chromed. Test it to be sure.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....
