Hello Caprock, I want to say a belt buckle because it looks like a hook on thee right side in the center.

Just a guess - I can't wait to see what others will say it is

I would say a brass saddle or bag tag. the two little nubs on the side are to fold over something and hold it in place.

Well i say two but one of them has been broken off.

Hi Eric, 

I never did figure out what it was and it is very intriguing because of the design and especially now that you have found one as well. I always look to you for help on a whatsit :-) 

We'll stay in touch with each other and I will be sure to let you know if I figure it out. Ron is really good about Internet research so let's hope he can figure it out or another member here may know. 

Cheers, Mark

I have to suggest that you take it to a resource in your area, don't mail it out find one and make an appointment to see them in person.
When I found the Breast Plate - everyone had an opinion but no one that I spoke with was an authority on the subject. The one man I contacted to come to our meeting said yes but got lost on the way and went home. Beats me why he didn't call for directions but that is another story.

I finally contacted West Point and the weapons folks on campus and made a date to meet. He knew right off what it was and showed me pictures in books to confirm it.

No brag on that story - I just wanted you to get a feel and get moving on finding someone who will assist you with their knowledge.
I would start with folks who know antique belt buckles for a start but that was my guess.
