    I acquired these two weights which are about 7 pounds each.
    I'm familiar with the cylindrical brass weights from the 1970s.
    Are these old weights or perhaps from Korea?
    Thanks.

    Old weights, not from Korea, they are likely from a German GF clock made in the 1920 - 1937 era.

    Ocasionally the inner weight will be wrapped in newspaper which can be dated directly or indirectly. Willie X
