    I'm not sure what this is. I found it at a yardsale cuz it was cheap. It seems like it's some sort of telegraph it has post for wire connections at the bottom. The keys have two settings it seems.

      Just a guess, but would it be one of those time clock things? that night watchmen use to time in on while on their patrols?
