1 Someone Must Know What This Is…

Old telephone bell. The ball is the clapper, the rod is attached to a plate at the bottom which the coils move. The coils are the two round parts. Upper left you can see a knurled nut on a binding post. If you can look at the cylinders you should see copper wire wrapped around the rusty iron cores. The bells sat on top, one of the mounts is visible on the right
