Look like house window locks.

Some type of metal framed window locks? Is the circular part graduated at an angle so it would work as a cam lock? Hard to tell from photos. I had some similar on a building one time.

My grandmother's house had sash locks just like that. Her house was built in 1917.

Robert,
I have an old wood ice box at home that has these same handles that are use for locking the doors. There's another locking clip that attaches to the wood front that the handle rotates over to lock the door from opening.

Those are tailgate latches for a wood wagon. Not sure of brand,without some checking, but I'm thinking Hercules. There is a small casting that they latch to. They were made left and right hand, so looks like you have half the market cornered. I think they are right hand.

I also agree with the window latch and ice box latch. I'd say they are most valuable to a woody restorer, though. There are a couple people that do them for a living and would be glad to have them.

My TT's wooden cab has those latches on it's sliding doors. Yes, they come in right and left hand and there is a mating piece that they close over. I suspect they were made by some hardware company and sold to different industries including retail hardware stores.
