Hey guys, I found this item while detecting a corn field in New England. Any idea how it might have been used? There a bunch of marking on it but I didn't come across anything when I googled it. I looks like it may have been a suspender strap buckle. It's about 2" wide.

I don't know exactly what this came off, but with some enhancement I can see the maker mark for I.N. Deitsch, active in New York from 1904-c.1920. Not to be confused with the Deitsch Brothers (Charles & Edward) who also produced silver and leather combination items in New York around the same time. Here's your mark alongside the mark used by I.N, Deitsch for comparison:

Instantly I knew it was an adjuster for a suspender strap. The shape looked like it was a newer style than the ones I have found from the 1800's. I think you are right on the money!
