I dug this today, on my property where I have found civil war bullets and buttons before. Anybody have any ideas on what it is?

This is a WWII era German sword hanger, and it has the same idea as your Civil War era one.

The other possibility is it might be 1/2 of a horse bit. The hook could be where the reign attached. Definitely an interesting piece. Thanks for the replies. The outer edge of the end holes appear to be worn thinner than the rest of the piece.
