    Silver plated? Pretty fancy.

    Looks like it is worn slightly across the middle.



    Maybe the cross piece is missing and it was a strap guide or adjuster of some sort. I'm thinking horse equipment...

    To me it looks pretty tiny for anything horse related. Maybe a handle off one end of a small serving dish?

    I use an XP-Deus and have a Whites DFX as a back-up/loaner detector.

    Hi My Fellow TH'er
    As this item is silver washed I do not think that it is horse tack. As Cudamark suggested it might well be off a serving piece, bowl or plate, etc. Can you tell what the base metal is under the silver? Congrats on the find. I hope that someone can give you an ID. ;-)

    It may be half of a "T" type buckle.
    Where the "T" part would fit up through the hole and turn and hold.
    That would account for your wear marks...
    Like the Tung and Wreath buckles.
