mauseus:
Hi,

No, they are brooches. There should be a bobble terminal opposite to the one that remains on them. They are called equal ended plate brooches from C. 2nd century AD.

Aaaa I see now where they have been broken.Thanks for the comment +++

otlichnik:
Close.  They are actually Celtic late La Tene (LT III or LT D) period brooches.  They originate in the eastern Alps region - E Austria, W Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia. 

They were attached to a very thin, long looped pin part that actually looks a lot like a modern safety pin.  The pin rarely survives today.

See images of some of mine.
