    Iron artifact mystery #2

    All, this iron artifact was found near a farmhouse built in the 1880s and inhabited ever since. At first I thought it was part of a shelf brace ó but it seems too small for that. Also there are no screw holes to be found. Then considered a stirrup, but seems too small for that to. Appreciate any ID and age.

    Bent piece or iron?

    Common material, indefinite shape that may have been on purpose or coincidental.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Reminds me of hold down dogs which are driven in holes on a workbench to hold down wooden pieces being worked on.
