Piece of Mail ?
Piece of mail. Additional comment by Mart Shearer based on the image: the corroded U-shaped piece appears similar to the "hangers" used on mail collars to keep the overlapped section in place. I propose the lower right corner is the top of the collar.
If you have any questions, please send them to Wade Allen
