Two items for ID please .
The decorative buckle type object looks to have some age to it . My first thoughts were maybe some sort of buckle with an iron pin or possibly the end of a key ? Just guesswork .
30 mm diameter .

Second item looks to be chisel like in appearance as far as the business end goes . Reminds me of a "tooth" from a digger machine or maybe from a plough ?
40 mm long 25 mm wide

My thinking is an annular buckle or brooch and a pot/trivet leg. Both with decent age :thumbsup:

I'd just leave it as is. You could remove the excess crumbly rust with some pointy nosed pliers if you really wanted to though may regret doing so? Can we have some more pics of it, ta. :thumbsup:

Could be a swivel. The iron part probably went all the way through leaving a loop?
