    Chain

    They’re pre 1920’s lock washers. Early lock washers were thicker and more donut like. Someone has locked them together. Turn them 90° to each other and they should come apart.

    I don't think it's a chain either.
    I can't think of any reason to have a link with such a large cross-sectional diameter, and then not be fully welded at the ends.

    Like they say: A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

    I agree with the other posters that these are most likely just large lock washers.
    And not stainless or galvanized either. (Intended to be painted, or used indoors / out of the elements.)

    washers
    give away would be that they are off set, not flat
    offset so they lock the bolt when compressed

    They were also a puzzle of sorts. You have to line them up just so to separate them.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.
