Found this today, any thoughts on what it is? It’s made of brass and has no markings that I can see. Thought the oval may be a signet, but a crude one at that if it is. Any help is appreciated!

What were the circumstances of its discovery? Was it on a military site or an old farmstead?
Bill, I found it on an 1840s homesite where I had found the VMI Cadet button in Gloucester, VA. Also pulled quite a bit of camp lead out of the ground there, and several other CW era items.
