They are wings that go with a model A or T Motometer radiator temp gauge. I found some already.

Thanks for the help. I bought a junior metal detector for my 11 year old son a few weeks ago and the wings were one of the 1st things he found. Unfortunately the detector which is made by National Geographic's is now failing. I will have to see what I do. He loves searching for old things.

We live about 1 1/2 south of Pittsburg by Uniontown. I have been told of a few old sites close by that we will try once we get the detector fixed or sent back.

Good quality from the very start.
