Old, Idaho Power, Crimping Tool

I’m guessing that this old tool was used by a lineman of the Idaho Power Company. As to it’s exact use, I don’t know but it appears to be a crimping tool of some sort. When the handles are squeezed together it appears something would be impressed on perhaps a piece of thick metal. One side of the jaws appears to reads; I.P.CO. and the opposing side; C.E.B.. On one side of the tool it reads; $1.00 Reward if returned to Idaho Power Company. The other side and a buffalo or bison logo and reads; Gibson Marking Devices. The patent would date this to 1926. I believe it is nickel plated steel.

It measures about 5” long and is in nice condition.
