Right, that appears to make the most sense. The Eddystone mark if indeed that is what it is, would make this an M1917 Enfield plate. Are they so close in measurements that one could fit the other? I have seen pictures that appear to match the profile of this plate on a 1903 stock.
I mic'd it and came up with this:
Tang length from inside=1.75"
Screw hole (Center) in tang from inside=0.75"
Lower plate screw hole (Center) from bottom of tang=3.525"
Overall length from bottom of tang=4.6"
Also the port opening top edge is 0.75" from the bottom of the tang, and measures 0.895 in diameter on my caliper
