Clad, a Winged Phrygian Cap & a Whatizzit..


Recommended Posts

Got out early this morning before the heat and summer camp kids to hit a local school built in the 1930s. Got $3.02 in loose change, a 1945 Winged Liberty Head dime (Merc), and this “Whatizzit.” I think it is brass, and may be part of an old window opening latch(?). What do you guys think?

Possibly an old transom window latch piece??? I think you have it figured out! Does the school have high horizontal windows?? Nice Finds! I just bought a pile of Merc's!
