I feel like I have seen something very similar to this item before, but I can simply not place where, when, or what it is. I found this metal detecting at a site in Colorado where a fair has been held since the 1970s. I noticed using Google Earth that there used to be some sort of homestead or farm (with multiple buildings) at this site as well. There were images of it there in 1937 and in 1955. I found this object down by where the farm would have been located.

Any ideas?

I wonder if it like an adjustable pin of some sorts. It has some bend-ability, as though maybe the two "prongs" were meant to be squeezed together and put into something so that it would hold something in place? Just a guess.
