Hello all

Can someone please give me an approximate age for this buckle?

I know next to nothing about buckles.

Decimal halfpenny for scale.

My thanks.

Haven’t seen one like that before, possibly not a buckle? Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will be along with the answer

Not sure what that is but it isn’t a buckle :Thinking:

You see what I mean - I know naff all about buckles!

I can't think what it is then, as it hasn't been broken off of anything else. Its seemingly a stand alone piece.

Mystery.

Beer bottle opener? Looks like a handle or something broken off.

Agree on the key handle top being the most likely candidate :thumbsup:
