Found the item below and wondered it it could be a strap end?

It’s a copper alloy of some sort and try as I might I can’t see any pattern on it..I actually think it’s modern junk but thought I would check before consigning it to the scrap pile....,

Regards

Peter

That has an unevenness to it which would have it going into my "possible" pile. First thought was book-related but then it's been a long, hard week :D

Thanks for that...my first thought was the the two holes are a little too round and "perfect" to have any great age?

Obviously attached to something iron. I wonder if it was a strengthening bar on a cart or a plough or something. It certainly has age to it :thumbsup:

The holes are countersunk so I would guess relatively modern. It would go in my scrap bucket. :D

That's where it's heading at the moment, unless anybody knows different!
