    Hi all! Trying to identify the metal inside this old data switch. It's not magnetic. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    That looks like the inside of a rotary switch.
    Most likely yellow brass contact plates.

    Thanks. It's not a rotary switch but an older data switch like this http://www.datapro.net/images/2025-22C.jpg

    Please note the forest of solder points on the outside of the drum ...
    That would most likely be a 2 position rotary switch with 12 contacts per deck. Without the part number I can not say for sure the exact configuration.
