    Old Farm Implements? Some type of plow parts? Need ID Help..I'm STUMPED..

    I would really appreciate it if someone could ID these items. They are Iron, have an obvious hole for a srew to attach to something...?
    - My first thoughts are to some sort of a farm implement (Interchangeable teeth) or plow type parts...? i have scoured the internet for weeks and still haven't a clue. On one side they do have a certain degree of "rocker" which would lead me to believe that they were mounted on something round possibly??
    - They also seem to have all failed or broken in approximately the same places, so I assume they were under some type of stress, torque, or other load...All of the pieces were found in approximately the same general area...within 35ft or so from each other, over several trips to the location, along with many other pieces, but these ones "belong" or fit together
    - After hours and hours of electrolysis, I noticed that they are stamped with what I believe to be two capital "D's...or "D D" (pic #3) Any and all help or suggestions would be very much appreciated... Thank you very much in advance!!

    The screw hole is beveled so it makes me think the curved part was recessed and not seen the flat part would have been the face.Like AARC I think it is some type of latch or strike plate from a door.Possibly top or bottom of door, stock trailer door?

    I can see in my head the part I want to look up, but can't find the right search words.

    Where did you find them, in a field? Were they all together or scattered? Or in a dump pile?

    Is anything else in the area? What is the area's history?

    I'm not positive, but they look like the parts from a " spring-tooth" harrow.

    My first impression was the shape and size of hand rasp or hand planer, minus the wood block portion and blade sections. Will have to search images on the net

    Wood planes have a solid metal foot also no threads in screw hole I see what you see but have worked with wood a lot and definitely not a plane.

    I keep thinking something akin to a part used in some of the old fridge and/or freezer doors. This part would be attacked to a spring-loaded mechanism and a handle would attach to this. ...Ok, so now everyone knows how warped my thinking is.

    I will take a wild stab at these items .................. Since they seem to "rock" and have a chute , I will guess they are hill dropper inserts from a very old cotton planter ................ If no cotton grown in the area , I am very wrong .....
