2119 - Fastener for clipping suspenders to pants.ReplyDelete
2123 - These fasten onto shoe heels for walking in icy weather
2121 - mouse trapReplyDelete
2122 - might be the back or side to an old-style cash register. The one I found was about 12" wide by 10" tall, but this looks smaller.. Was mostly a plate with a design on it, and a small tab to pull the back off.ReplyDelete
Just a wild guess though.
