    Coat of Arms if Spain?!!

    Hello All,

    Normally I can identify 99% of what I recover, but lately I found a few pieces that were real stumpers! I want to thank all of you for your help! I dug this in a site that has had relics from the 1700s up through the 1920s, including Civil War relics. The piece is broken at both the top and the bottom. One side is blank but the other side appears to have the abbreviated coat of arms of Spain (the “laurel wreath version”) from 1700-1868. I’ve dug French and Spanish colonial relics in South Louisiana, so I’m curious if this might be another one. So...The real question is, what on earth is this from?

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    it is a tough one. It’s quite thickly constructed to be a buckle tongue, but might be possible
