Are there any more examples?
The Canadian one is mine and the US one is on the market.

I think the small part you found in the genny doesn't belong there.
The triangle-shape open end reminds me of a key for Petromax needles.
The parts diagrams (links above) just show a genny housing, long pricker wire with needle and coil inside as with any other genny.
