Does look like a bit of a harmonica reed.

I have found a few of them in the past. I have always though they were a Reed from an organ of some type, like a mouth organ or squeeze box

An unusual find... My guess... would be that it was part of an old electrical connection/circuitry board.

A common find for detectorists which is part of a harmonica, is the reed plate itself which holds the ‘reeds’ in place and often the reeds themselves are missing due to them being made of thinner metal. It doesn’t seem that the ‘reeds’ of your find would vibrate under the pressure of ones breath...

I think I’m right, I usually am ;D  yeh I said it ;D ;D  ;D

Wot else u got?

Oh and cheers for posting :)

Interesting theories...

I would like to think it's a harmonica, I can almost hear someone playing a wee ditty while the town's folk toil in the fields haha

Sland ... are we required to contact our FLO if we find alien technology?

Haha

I wonder how much it would cost to send it to a galaxy far far away?? ...probably astronomical

...Ok I'll stop there.
