Do you know what this piece of hardware I found is?

millshreNovember 24, 2013

I found this while metal detecting in my back yard. It's not a perfect 90 degree angle. It is stamped M-VB on the back/underside. We found it with a few old nails.

Edited to add, I should have pointed out, the widest part of the clover looking part is about 1.5 inches.

Rail holder?
Maybe part of a carriage?

My husband thought maybe something to do with a carriage but I can't remember why he thought that.

I'm sorry if this is stupid, but what do you mean by rail holder?

Thanks guys!

Holds a round rod as some sort of a guard rail.

Carriages had railings along the edges for holding the tops, for luggage, etc.

Is it galavanized, painted or cast?

Kinda looks like part of a hinge.
