    Unusual object. Clamp? What?

    While going through some estate items given to the museum I came across this item. It is about 5 inches long as shown in scan. It is obviously what is known as new-old-stock from an old hardware store. It was in a cardboard box that just turned to dust when I opened it, so I know it is very old. There is a strip of black felt attached to the screw and bolt that go through it. The dust you see is from the remains of the box.. No directions No markings what-so-ever on item. It is painted black. The widest part is one inch, the smallest part is 1/2 inch. Anyone have a clue?

    It looks like a removable sight from a rifle.

    No mounting holes and no clear way to sight.

    SWR: There is no brand mark on this item. Would it not be brand marked? I'm looking again and see nothing.
