Hello All,

I am new to this site and have been digging for many years. About 2 weeks ago I had got permission to a where American troops encamped for a few months during the American Revolution. I found what looks to a be a possible hook? Maybe a latch? I'm unsure but have a feeling it is war related. Does anyone have an idea of what it maybe? The site was still wooded and not cleared out for farming. Don't suspect it being much later and most likely period. One of the pics included a measurement for size. It is iron and i did preserve it to stop it from further rusting. Thanks for looking!

it looks like a piece of a horse bit
could be as old as 1700s or could be as new as the last century, tough to nail when it went into the ground
