    Appears to be Spring steel with graduated markings. Judging the wear on it, i'd say a fine vintage around 1990. Likely of Craftsman or Ace Hardware origin. Possibly old enough to have been made in the USA, you'll have to look for markings to confirm.

    1/2" copper tubing that has been crimped and soldered closed.
    Plumbers did/do this to test the lines for leaks when they pressure test the system.
    They cut it off when they "top out" and attach the finish hardware.
