Nice collection! Always love a Jews harp....there are some Youtube videos of people playing them.
The handle with the long stem in the top picture looks like the handle for a cake-stand. Goes through a hole in a plate and fastened by a little nut. :thumbsup:

Thats a cool set of finds there Joe
You have buckles and coins, plus potential picnic items (cake stand handle) and older kids toys with the animals, and musical entertainment!....
