No, not in a casino. Well, it could have something to do with things that are shiny.

It looks like it would hold something in place in the area where the pin is, the pin's purpose to hold the object in a predictable/known position. The vertical slot at the far left hold something else while it gets attached or gets pierced to match later. I dunno...measures the diameter of precious stones?

I'm reachin'... I wish I had a sense of it's scale. I'm guessing the handle is approximately the size of any average grip-width so if that's correct we have some idea of the entire size. Katie, feel free to comment. :))

That is what I am thinking.. the grip is fist size and the thing at the end is slightly larger than a man's palm/hand? Katie... we're dying for clues!!!!
