The only marking on this item is "pat. apld. for" It appears to be cast metal of some sort and we have no clue what it's use is.

    Is this a part of a whole tool ? I'm thinking part of a wire twister.

    Thanks gentlemen for your input! My son looked at the weird tool with the mini hook on it and thought it was a vintage billiard/pool/cue tip holder...The shaft of the stick went in and the tip was adhered on, then hung by the hook to dry..Your thoughts? Also in answer to one of your questions, the tool in question is the tool in its entirety.

    Guess we can rule out being left by aliens as I doubt they would apply for a patent.
