Default Anyone ever find one this small?

Never found a crotall bell this small before. It’s almost exactly the same as a quarter. Also found these fishing weights. They look different to me. anyone know if they’re common?Name:  D5D070EF-13E0-4083-A908-89122AEBC662.jpeg

In my region it looks like Chinese medieval...
But our made in form of dragons, frogs etc.
One of them was with the teeth inside. Real teeth
I think it's very old

not to hijack a thread but curious. we never find crotall bells in the south , Georgia where i live, actually Central-south Georgia.

Are they just for Sleighs? we dont have sleighs in our climate. i have found and seen ox knobs, cow bells, modern jingle bells junk, small non electric type doorbells with a hook and chain on clapper for the mailman, even kitty cat bells to warn birds, but never found a crotall.
