Is this a mount of some sort?

Appears to be copper alloy and I assume it is some sort of mount but any suggestions would be welcome. Left to right it's 40mm and top to bottom it's 33mm. Found last Sunday near Perth in a stubble field that was producing loads of decent targets (no hammered silver coins though). Lots of Georgian and Victorian stuff coming up including gothic florins etc.
