Default SOLVED. Part of an Old Rifle? Help!

Good evening fellow hunters. At a quick glance I thought I had dug up a flint piece of a flint lock rifle. But as I examine it... idk anymore. Why the D 9 on it.

Can we get something for size comparison? Im thinking its not a rifle part that I can identify but maybe a locking tooth from something like a winch or wagon brake?

My guess is that its a window latch sash lock. They come in many different styles and sizes but whatever you have I think it served something similar to that.

What I do to mark as solved, is click "Edit post", then just add the word "Solved" to the original title.
