    I can see that it says PATENT and maybe 1863.
    If the size is correct (small) I believe it is a adjuster from the back of trousers, like the second one down on the left:

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    Artifact size to scale. Union button found on same site, as well as dropped lead (on right)

    So, would the consensus be that it is a trouser adjustment buckle?
