Another tang sight ID ...?

This one is in an upcoming auction.  Any thoughts from our resident experts as to who might have made it or what it will fit at this hole spacing (2.150")?  Here is the description:

"UNKNOWN VINTAGE PEEP SIGHT , UNMARKED. APPROX. 2 3/4" HEIGHT, 2.150 HOLE SPACING, MICROMETER ADJUST, 0 TO 5 GRADUATIONS, LIGHTLY PITTED"

I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't quite reached my "Expiry" date yet ...

Looks like either a WRA 38A or 38B tang sight... depending on the particular angle that exists between the base and staff when the staff is rotated to the shooting position.
  

There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading, the few who learn by observation, and the rest who have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.

In the end it sold for $180 Canadian plus auction house fees and shipping.  (I didn't buy it ...)
