    Lock plates on muskets are steel, not brass. Brass would not take the constant hammering very well.

    I think he meant musket "side plate." They were made in brass and some were iron as well. It does look like a broken side plate. One of the screw holes remains, and there would have been a second, which is missing. Also some lock plates were indeed brass. I have one. Though they are few and far between, and have steel parts attached to them.
