    Musket Triggerguard?

    Hey everyone I dug this odd piece of iron and was wondering what it could be. I am inclined to think itís a broken crude triggerguard on account of its shape and due to the fact I found a gunflint and melted lead near it. Though I suppose it could be a drawer pull or just a piece of junk/mangled square nail. I found a flat button as well. I would be interested to hear yíalls opinions. Thanks!Click image for larger version.

    If it is a trigger guard looks kinda small for a musket?

    looks like an old staple that would have been used to mend a cracked board. definitely not a trigger guard though

    Wagon staple. I found an item just like it. On a positive note, it is pre-1900, so may be more there.
