[Gen'l Info] found this in a cornfeild metal detecting

was curious if any one could shine some light on this item
the area dates early 1800s till late 1800s
was found at about 7-8 inchs
deeper the the farmers disc can plow it up
item is not cast iron and has gilt on both sides
as this in northern illinois (an hour or so south of wisc.)
the indians of the area were known to help the british in the war of 1812
also it was a site of an indian village
a black hawk war encampment
and a small settlement 12 or so buildings
so a few possibilites
