If you can rotate the cash coin 1/4 turn right, I could probably date it for you. Hard to read sideways.

The 3rd pic looks like a harness buckle cover.

This coin kept bugging me and now I finally realize the proper rotation was 1/4 turn counterclockwise.

That lock commemorates the trip where Adm. Byrd was Allegedly taken into the Earth by flying saucers . There is a whole conspiracy theory about it.
