Default Flue scraper ID

I've got a flue scraper and I'm hoping that someone can tell me if it's old or fairly new. It's number 682, half way down this page:

Also, I went to an antique machinery show over the weekend and took some photos of several great looking steam tractors, they can be seen here if anyone is interested:

Thanks for taking a look.

I think it is old chainbreaker. Used to scrape out boiler tubes I think.

If you could find the manufacturer that would be great, there is no company name on mine. I've looked on the web and couldn't find anyone selling them.

681 looks a lot like a hoof scraper for cattle (not the tool you were asking about but thought I would toss that in)

Thanks, I added your suggestion to the list of guesses, still haven't been able to verify any of them.
