Avery type plow / spade head.

Errrr... cultivator blade rather.
I had noticed the beveled edge on the backside.

This was done on purpose to have a cutting edge to the tooth.
It might of come off a harvester and this is a cleaning/cutting tooth from the unit.
It would of been attached along side of many others that might of rotated on a shaft to drag the material through the thrasher/harvester cutting/breaking it into smaller lengths.
No way for us to know what size it is unless you tell us or even better put something of a known size in the photos for us to judge the size.

Looks like it is about 3/4 of the length of a single paper towel sheet, maybe 5 inches. The square hole looks like it is for the type of bolt head that is on cultivating equipment in soil contact, like cultivator teeth and plowshares. I'd guess its a cultivator tooth.

It is rather small for my opinion... but could have been a toy version perhaps... ? ? ?

I just saw the clothes pin picture upon my revisit.

Looks to me like the metal part of the seat from an old style 10-speed bike.

It seems to have (had) an edge on it so I'm thinking woodworking tool blade. Maybe a scraper or a bark spud blade.
