Unknown 8” Post Vise

I found this 8” post vise at a swap meet today.  Almost no identifying marks.  Can it be an Iron City?

This might be a makers mark. Its only around a half inch in size.  The line is just a line in the metal.  Not a crack.

Nice big vise! 

Doubt it's anything to do but maybe. ( it is a lil different but similar)  but my mousehole anvil from pre mid 1830's has this stamp. 

Not saying its a mousehole, but?   

Just that mark made me think of the one on my anvil.
