It not any type of zone damper for ductwork that I have seen.

I have installed many a damper in ductwork

Oh hell! While we are still speculating; The metalwork reminds me of an old Coke machine I used to have at a previous business. It's obviously too small for that (and missing the thingies that keep it cold) so I'm guessing a cigarette dispenser, but it could be a Pachinko machine.

Next time you see something like that, Phillip...pick the damn thing up and take a photo of the front! [:D]

I think I realized what it is, the metal flaps had me fooled into a damper. I think it is the mechanism from a coin operated pool table. The flaps open and drop the balls out?

Richard, I believe you are on to something. The tracks look to be the right sizes for that.
