Is this a slat skidplate?

I found this tucked away in my garage. I "think" it's for a slat. If so, early or late?

Thanks!

Thanks, David.

I remember seeing that page, but I had no luck finding the link.

I think this was very late Slat Gril to early post-Slat Grill. Looks like it's missing the bolt on piece?
