That's a really cool recovery, and like you stated what's it doing there?
Congrats on the recovery and on the silver.

I'm thinking this is where it was on their uniform (or maybe on their hat) , this one in this pic is probably an earlier version? But it's definitely got a slight "roundness" to it

I haven't seen a plate like that before.
Is there anything on the back where something was attached at one time.

The NW Mounted Police was formed as a small force to serve the more remote settlements of Western and Northern Canada. Its role and territory increased over time and it became the RCMP which is the Federal, nationwide Canadian police force today.

Went to a park I've destroyed over the yrs , and they bushwacked the pickers, I was able to squeeze out a washington and this?
Near as I can tell it's the predecessor to RCMP.. where would this be on their hat/uniform?
Wonder how this got to south east connecticut ..I believe they changed to R.C.M.P in 1920
I don't think it was an insignia for their uniform, very possible it could be a piece of horse tack, i.e. saddle, bridle or saddlebag badge
