Looks like the swing weight assembly that was used in slow rat many years ago.  Perky looks good Bob.

But you have me beat in the number of NATS.  My first one was 1964 at Grand Prairie Naval Air Station.   The second one was 1970 Glenview Illinois Naval Air Station.  The it has been off and on since.
