What the heck are these?
These were found with my M-scope under a few feet of mud. I was told they may be part of a ratchet cannon but I dont think so. The gear wheel is about 3 inches thick and the other thing looks like some kind of train car wheel but its only half of it and about 12 inches tall abd the half I have is close to 3 inches thick.

It looks like a twenty dollar bill, probably made in the 1900's, or early 2000, if you can show the other side, I can give you a more accurate date and value!
The other object, I have no idea, but then, it could be an anchor.

Definitley not an anchor. One looks to be half of a train car or mine car wheeland the other is a big heavy gear wheel. From what, I do not know.

The 2nd one has the same shape as a die- used to cut threads. Big one tho.

The first piece with the teeth around the outside looks like a drive sprocket for a shaft driving a conveyor belt or some such device. The second looks like it could be an internal part from a pump or the endcap from a drive drum like on a conveyor or a timing gear for something large. Where were these found? Were they near each other? On a farm or near a packing shed? Location, location, location! Here are a couple I saw online. The one you have would be a chain drive rather than gear to gear.
