It's almost 5" long and 7/8" wide at the claw part. The "nose" is 3/8" in diameter, so pretty big.
So maybe with claws open, the nose (I know ya'll will like that) gets inserted into a tube-something and then when you tighten the claws they squeeze the tube-something. Sigh.

I have no idea if there is a picture of it. It seems highly likely that it would be used with a specialized press, instead of using a hammer and anvil. I would guess that the eyelet/grommet would be aced into the "armed device and then the press would push it down thru the material and compressed against a fixed anvil which would be mounted on the press.
Alternatively, it could be used to press the primer cap as part of an ammo reloading device.
I'm pretty sure it is a device for holding something that is pressed into something else.

Interesting you mention selenium. Supposedly in a deficient area here though
a neighbor claims it showed up as a trace in his well water. Used to have
llamas which require more selenium than most other critters. Always tried
to make sure that either their feed or trace minerals had selenium. Not both
at the same time since there was controversy about just how much they did
need... Bet the areas that used to be their pasture still have much more
selenium than other parts of our land.
