    This is quite possibly a war time catch.
    As far as I know, these were used on pocket watches and such.
    I am also sure that these have been produced more recently as well.

    I’m sorry to ask but what does war time catch mean? Also when you say they’ve been produced more recently, do you think this is one of them and what time period? Other than that it seems good and I appreciate the quick response!

    I looked it up but this one doesn’t have the same clip like all the others on the internet that’s why I was asking for help

    The ones i've seen had more detail and a different clasp on the end. The first can be due to it being heavily worn and the second because of a different variation. There is also a piece missing that connects the end to a pocket watch or anything else. Hard to judge by these photos, since none of them have good lighting or are in focus. These are not that rare and expensive to find in complete and good condition.

    Well, I have seen similar clasps on Gestapo, and Kripo disc chains.
    I once saw one on a TR era pocket watch for Panzer crews, as their pants had a small pocket and ring attached at the front for this purpose.
    Can I guarantee this one is not more recent, no, I can not.

    I purchased a whole collection of these at an auction, and all came from the same family. Your example is genuine and typical. I also have an example that would have been worn as a long necklace by a lady.
