When I look at that, I think, "Do not fold, SPINDLE, or mutilate." (Instructions given regarding the answer sheets at the beginning of every standardized exam.) The pointy ends make me think it might be a fancy spindle...an old way of keeping receipts from flying away by stabbing them onto a stick.Do you think the wooden part of the first item (436) is just for storage, display?
Why would 00, 99, 88, be the same?471 looiks like part of some cypher device. Like enigma, you know? the German WWII unbreakable code maker? It had wheels inside wheels that changed the code as it was being used, and only another identical machine could unscramble the code? That and British intelligence?
Oh, well, they're molds, but what final use I can't imagine.#228 looks like it could be a compass or folding t-square (or both?). It sure would be easier to fit into a toolbox that way!
Evo, note that the masks also go with #570...and I think that's more the question of what those are about than the case they're in.
