I don't know what it is. If you do, give us some good information on it and a link to more info.

A small lable on one of the arms says: Made in Taiwan Pat. 53025 3C+ some letters in Taiwanese.

I think it's a special tool thrift stores use to put the price label exactly centered over what you need to read...Like the center of the bottoms of collectible coffee cups and fine china..or over the labeling of the DC values and polarity of voltage converters. :roll: ...or an early version of the "Made in China" sticker one they hadn't copied yet. :lol:

Or it could be used with a slip-on rubber stamp to mark the center of bottom of cups..interchangable so they can change the labels to whatever highly collectible one they need to counterfeit for the "present run". :mrgreen:

It's a taiwanese gizmo called the "sucker punch"..It's used to empty sucker's wallets that purchase them and put them on mystery tool threads...it's not made to do anything specific ...but it looks cool to own one! :lol:

Okay..more serious now... :geek: ..It could be some kind of spanner for removing/unscrewing rings inside cylinders of some sort.. :roll:

I bet it's for screwing down hot boiled lids on canning jars... :DB:
