Any ideas I dug it up in my garden I was thinking old telegraph machine or something but I have no clue?

2 What Is It? (23 pics)

Old telephone bell. The ball is the clapper, the rod is attached to a plate at the bottom which the coils move. The coils are the two round parts. Upper left you can see a knurled nut on a binding post. If you can look at the cylinders you should see copper wire wrapped around the rusty iron cores. The bells sat on top, one of the mounts is visible on the right.

Decorative Iron Spike with Bent Tip.

Looks like this may be a marathon or fun run race medal. At the 12 o’clock position you can see where the eyelet has broken off for a ribbon to be passed through, and the size is about right.

Found in my jacket pocket. Looks like it was one thing that broke into two separate components.

I found this on the ground of an old abandon Psych Center in Kings Park Long Island. I think it’s an old radio but I don’t really know. Any ideas?
