My first thought is a piece of a broke nail or maybe a plumb bob but it appears to have no broken edges or anywhere to attach something like string. It constantly rings up mid 70s on the Garrett VDI. Has a little bit of weight to it but doesn’t appear to be lead. Found near late 19th C relics.

One side appears to be a squared off, 4 sided, point. The other side is more of a rounded point. Around 2 inches long.

looks to me to be a bar pin for a early broach. ( possible 1850's)

if your find is close to a military engagement area could be a early cap badge slider



Thanks sailaway. Your image does look close but when I opened it I see that it’s flat on the one side. The piece I found is the same on all sides, almost tubular. It’s very odd. You did get me thinking it could be the shank for something like a buckle. I did find another buckle, almost Victorian in appearance, nearby..within 20-30 feet. I don’t think it would fit it but maybe another one.
