Wondering if you found this anywhere near an overhead pole electric line? It looks very similar to whats called a Hot Line Clamp and is used for attaching to the mainline electric wire to feed a switch to power a transformer or attach lightning arresters for protection to the line. If you look up HotLine Clamp you will see the similarity. There is a insulated stick that attaches to the eyelet that allows you install it for added protection to the Lineman. They are not made of steel as that is a poor conductor of electricity. Usually they are plated brass. Just a thought as it looks like that's a possibility.

Exactly where it was found, thanks.
