It has a 1/4” hole and an Allen set screw it’s about 1 1/4” tall. Probably not even automotive but....

  28. Ehhhhhhh, I think it's a 51 ford wiper knob. Radio knobs had a little spring clip and a flat spot inside that corresponds to a flat [or slot] on the radio shafts. Wiper knobs had the set screw.
