    I can't see it too well but this almost looks like it's a very old piece, as in pre-WWI.

    It is pre WWII, maybe connected with horses? Anyway it is not an military item but a good find indeed!

    I agree. A piece much older than WW1 or 2. Possibly of Roman origin as the design reminds me of many Roman items.

    A nice find ! Well done to your wife

    Looks like a pin-lock, you have the "female"-part. They were used by 3 or 4 pairs that would interlock (male with female)on fur or woolen vests as we do now with pressure buttons.
    I think Steve T is correct in presuming it's roman era or at least middle ages.
    The Battlefields you are searching have a verry rich historycal background.
    very nice find indeed.

    Cheers,
    Steven
