    Found inside an EM.

    At first I thought it was a piece that had broken off, but now I’m thinking it may be a tool.

    There is a 1 stamped on it.

    Ive seen this before....but....still not sure.
    Seems like a piece off a coin mech?

    Is that the piece that would cut a string if someone drilled a quarter and tied a string to pull back the quarter?

    It kinda looks like something you'd find in a foreign coin acceptor.

    Quoted from Eric_S:

    No. Those are thinner like a razor blade.

    This looks to give some leverage or spring action to something. Pivots on the hole to the left of the 1 and something hooks into the right of the 1.

    The coin mech is National.

    Take a picture without the quarter and then post it to google images maybe you can get lucky and track it down.

    I did that and got nothing relevant

    Check the underside of the "bingo" layout of the Hi Hand Playfield
    to see if there are anymore of these pieces amongst the mechanics.

    Great idea. Alas, that wasn’t it. Must be some miscellaneous gauge or tool someone dropped into the machine. Unless it is part of a coin mech. Going to send the pic to a coin mech place and see if anyone recognizes it.

    I just rebuilt a vintage lock and the old-style "tumblers" inside of it looked just like this. I'd send you a picture, but it was a PITA to put it back together!

    Is there a name or type of that kind of lock that I could use for an online search for tumbler parts?

    This mortise lock tumbler part looks very close. We may have a winner!

    Here are a few pics of the key and lock and the cabinetIMG_2258 (resized).jpgIMG_2257 (resized).jpgIMG_2256 (resized).jpgIMG_2255 (resized).jpg

    The manufacturer was Eagle Lock Company in Terryville, CT.

    The cabinet belonged to a friend's father - he was a physician and used it in his office. I'm not sure of the age of the cabinet, but my friend passed away about 10 years ago and was around 80 years old.

    Anyone know what these are? Found in the cabinet.
