    I see no indication that these are military-related...My thoughts are that these are for Agricultural purposes...They aren't tow-hooks, they're rope-hooks, I believe...

    Agree. Or maybe for to hold tackle attached to a plow or wagon or beam in a barn. The forged rounded ones would indicate to me that it was used for rope or leather. I have a 200 year old barn and while all cleaned out of old broken farm implements, at one point I have see similar shapes attached to equipment.

    The cast iron one looks from the early 20th or late 19th century

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
