Hi guys looking for some input. I know as soon as someone says it I’m going to have a “doh” moment but I’m lost right now.

No marking whatsoever inside outside and upside down.

A.R. I believe your mystery tool is indeed a nail puller. We have something similar on display in our Farmer's Store at the museum. We haven't tried it on a nail so I'm not quite sure how efficient they are. Info came from an old mail order catalogue from the early 1900s. Here's a photo:

It's a nail puller, I have a more modern version with a light slide hammer in the handle to jam the beak into the wood. You basically just push the beak into the wood next to the nail head and lever it against the hinge, the beak closes on the nail and you lever it out. The harder you pull the harder it bites the nail. They WILL mar the finish.

'Nail puller' images can be had in most word working tool catalogues. I know that Lee Valley Tools displays one in their catalogue and some of the big box stores sell them.
