Default Suspender buckle?

Found yesterday, my yard, house dates to 1864.

Brass or copper.

Some sort of decorative buckle piece?
Letters at the top, can only make out "PA"

ideas?

Thanks

Thanks!

I rechecked the hole, and I found the piece in the upper left. the letter there are NMC I think.

believe it is part of the other piece, not positive.
