Not a bad day. Tons of targets, most of which I tried my best to ignore! The park has some history over the last hundred years or so, but, has been hunted hard in the past. I haven't hit it for at least 3 years, so, I was overdue. $10.04 in change (normally a good amount, but, it's not even 2 gallons of gasoline these days!), some e-cig/vape stuff, a bullet, a couple of batteries that I like to get out of the environment, 2 junk rings, a wheat cent, a silver Washington quarter, and a 10K gold pendant. Some other whatsits in the photo......what is that round dial off of? It has letters A through H and divisions in between, a shaft going through the middle and a small gear on the shaft on the back side. I'm not sure what the copper item above it is either. It's threaded on the inside of the bottom end, knurled on the bottom third of the outside, open on the top, and has a thin crosshair insert inside. Nozzle of some sort?

Our town had a post office that had letter combination locks on the PO boxes that were kind of similar to your mystery lettered thingy. Not sure. Nice finds though!!

I think your round dial is out of a sprinkler box the letters would have been different stations in the lawn and your nozzle thing might be a blow torch tip or some kind of welding tip. I like the pendant I find a lot of religious pendants. Never have found a pendant like yours a personalized letter, that is cool.

Don't just pitch the Chucky Cheese token! Some of them have some value to em! Amazing how many variations popped up over the years.
