Default Is this a civil war button?

Hello, I was detecting in a known confederate camp in Suffolk, Va. I found several minie balls and this peculiar item. It appears to be a button from the 2 elongated holes in it, but the shape is odd. As far as I can tell that is the actual shape it was made in as it does not appear to be broken. I am not up on civil war relics and google returned nothing. Hopefully someone here can help? Thanks in advance!

I don't think that would be a button. At least not one I have seen before.
