It's a clamp that goes on a belt buckle. The teeth hold the cloth belt in place. Rest of buckle missing. Gary

Military dress belts and fatigue belts used that keeper to affix the buckle to the web belt. Those buckles were used way back into the 40"s.

You can see that piece on the left here, it holds the belt onto the buckle. We still use them in the military today, somethings never change.
