Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. I also metal detect here in eastern NC and I have dug different ones up. What these are Horse Bridle Rosette the back would have been filled with lead and a hook to go through the leather on the strap that went around the horses head. The age would be around the mid to late 1800's. The cap probably dropped off while somebody was riding across your property some time ago. Really cool find. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike

is it worth anything?
Expert:  ncsunburst replied 2 months ago.

Hi, To a collector it is probably worth around $25 to $40.00 if it is silver. That is what I price mine at my antique shop but put with other relics in a riker mount the grouping might bring more. Thanks Mike
