Default Ornate little clippy thing.

Seen these on the forum before but wondering what kind of buckle/clip this could be? Is not very thick and seems easy to bend/break if I tried to straighten it out. About the size of a half dollar.

Are they worth saving?

Thanks for any input.

Yep definitely suspender clip! I found one today myself that looks similar with a patent date of March 14, 1871.

Yep, pretty nice suspender clip.

While they are not my favorite finds they are way better than another shotgun head.
Dates probably from second half of 1800's into early 1900's.
