Made of copper alloy with no signs of any attachment points. It's slightly assymetrical. The split in one end looks intentional. It seems a bit chunky for a furniture mount so maybe functional. Any ideas?

I'm sure I saw a pic of one of these somewhere last week while I was looking for something else! :pulling hair out:

No idea fella, but that split doesnt look much use unless there is some flexibility in it where it is opened and placed over something to keep them in place?

It is reluctant to open more than a couple of mm but seems a strange place for it to break?

Not one of them button cleaning holder things is it? used to keep the button in place whilst it's being cleaned.

I can't find one similar to this so it's either a home made one ''which is possible'' or I am completely wrong ''more than likely'' :thumbsup:

I’ve seen some late medieval/ post medieval belt hangers that look quite similar :Thinking: But they are usually just one half, not the full oval.

Interesting!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

It certainly is NOT a knuckle duster.

Well you posted a header " Knuckle duster?" meaning you thought it might be, so I was just correcting your suggestion.

All edges are square angled with no roundedness at all. I feel that it's no older than the Victorian era but curious all the same.

Ah, I see your thinking, but you should know by now that I have quite a sense of humour. A headline is just to get attention, but it's the content that really counts. :thumbsup:

Well a realistic sensible title would be much more meaningful and useful in the future to anybody using the search facility.

Additionally considering one or two incorrect IDs I have seen recently I had no reason to think that you might be attempting humour rather than your ID of "Knuckle duster?" just being an incorrect ID.

I know full well what a knuckle duster looks like, however I strongly suspect that there are some on the forum that have never seen one and would think that you seriously thought this was a knuckle duster.

Anybody that uses any form of social media, including forums like this, needs to be aware that what one person considers "humour" might well be taken in a very different light by people reading it.

Okay Dad, I quite agree that there is not too much common sense about these days regarding some folk. So I most sincerely do apologise if I have misguided any numpties by my topic header! :-?

Sadly that post just validates what I said earlier and shows a total failure to understand and use common sense.

As others might have noticed I try to be helpful with my posts, by doing research that will come in useful to the finder and hopefully others. I this case the heading was VERY clearly wrong and I said so.
I suspect the truth is that you actually thought that it was a knuckle duster, and it was only after it became obvious that it was not that you then decided that you would you the "humour" get out clause, rather than admit that you were wrong.
