Unknown Egyptian Clip Thing

I am completely stumped on this one. It was found at a site that only had activity from 1850-1878. My first thought was that it was a piece of a suspender clip, but the backing doesn't seem right for that. It appears that it attached to something, I just have no idea what. Hopefully someone here has some insight. Any information would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Keep your head down, your swing smooth and Coil to the soil

Very interesting! Looks like tin? Magnetic? If so, it can't be super old, it would be rusted away. Stick a magnet to it and let us know.
