I'm guessing part of an old musket lock.
It's a quarter!!!
The Capone treasure Geraldo was looking for?

OK, seriously, maybe some sort of spring?
I think I see Waldo.

Its a sash lock from an old double-hung wooden window.

...or it could just be a quarter.
It's a rusty piece of metal next to a quarter and a ruler.
Sash lock sounds right to me.
Sash lock or a hinge. Does it matter at this point?
no it doesn't matter. I just was wondering. ANd to the op- we found it in the back yard.
ok it was a nut that went on a horse drawn plow it was to hold the side blades on . it was made so you could take it on or of with the tap of a hammer da da da :sing:
