Treasure 1/04/1818

OK readers, here is your chance to possibly help me again.
I was recently helping a friend clean out an estate and we came across this. It’s brass and flat, strong but semi-movable on the narrow side. It is 7 inches long. It says JR.G&S  WD 1960 22B 87.
Here are my thoughts. Maybe it’s some kind of a key to open a door within a factory? But I also think the round sides you see could be a bit sharper than the other edges so I’m not so sure. I did research and couldn’t come up with anything
What do you think? Can anyone help figure this out? (This is the fun part of my job, finding out something new every day!)
