Maybe it's a sheet metal "nibbler" for rectangular holes or slots.

Maybe it WAS used by in a stagecoach factory.
I wonder if this guy would know:

I emailed the coach shop. Great find, thank you!
The residue looks like oil plus dirt = grease.

Dave at Engel’s Coach suggests that the die looks like a common wagon tool for forming felloe plates.
However, the press itself is unfamiliar to him.
I had to go look at what a felloe plate was. They appear to help hold the wooden wheel sections together at the rim.
