Found two weird shaped deals that remind me of like a monopoly battleship or something. I thought maybe a form of sad iron till I found the one with the big screw in it one says 70 other 83

Depends on your definition of old nobody had any idea anything was there so the site has been buried for at least 80 years, give things time to get buried I think at minimum it’s early 1900’s. You east coasters may laugh at that being “old” but I think things are closer in time to original settlers of the area than to now. The heavy iron also makes me think they aren’t too recent.
As far as the lights everything is possible but imagine a pasture in Kansas with the closest small town 4 miles away my mind is thinking, wagon parts, barn hardware, wood stoves, farming machines.

Almost resembles an insert for a sad iron. But a different version.

That was my initial best guess but that screw seems to indicate it was set into something else I have to assume the other one had a similar function. Appreciate the help I know stuff from this site is tough I never seem to get a solid Id
