I am trying to find out what this is and how was it was used. I made an inquiry to the FB - Paterson Historic Preservation Society and they said maybe a small belt buckle or rosette for a horse bridle, but they had not seen one. They made some inquiries and someone linked to a picture of a reproduction (the back looked like a stick pin had been attached) that was sold at auction, but I have not been able to find another picture of one like this. In the last picture of the gun set (provided by the Preservation Society) - the caper has the same pattern as this buckle.

The front has Patent Arms Manc co Patterson, N.J. and Colts Patent.

Again Thanks!
