Perhaps from part of a pair worn on the uniform around the 1800’s.

Example from that era,

Reproduction Royal Marine other ranks' cross-belt plate, circa 1805.

I believe they are for the white pouches worn by Musicians in the Royal Marines Band Service.
The use of the kings crown however suggests the badge is quite old.Screenshot_20180602-163358_Samsung Internet.jpg
