    That is an urgos leader from years ago. An ordinary suspension spring will fit. About one half to five eights inch long. The curved part at the top fits under the sus spg post facing the movement . Supposed to stabilize against wobble of pend. Peter

    Just imagine the top curved part not being there. The forked part hooks onto the lower block of the sus spg. On the cross pin in the lower block. It’s just a different way of attaching the upper end of the leader to the lower block. If you hold it up there you’ll probably see the solution.
