    This is likely an inside pants or underwear buckle, late-19thc as suggested by nkellam.
    The examples I've found will often have the date 1871 stamped into the frame here.

    I have found identical buckles with dates as early as the 1830s.

    Were you able to ID the item laying next to the buckle? I found same exact “cap” with a thread below as if it screws into or over something.

    Thanks!

    What is it made out of? Will a magnet be attracted to it?

    I'm thinking the "cap" next to the pants buckle is either an overalls button/rivet or if it's threaded, then it may be the filler-cap to an oil lantern.
