strange rearbrake drum

i have a rear brakedrum that puzzles me.
I compared it to a 1941 knuckledrum, its the same diameter, the face to face width however is 1-25/32 instead of 2-3/32. Its a stamping,a knucklesprocket fits exactly and it also matches to the starhubholes.The knucklebrakeshoes fit for the diameter, but are too wide!Its a little bit dusty,but unused(maybe nos).
Initially i thought it to be for a 36 but that has a smaller diam.What can it be, something between 36 and 37, or much later repop or so?

Here you can see some pics of it: http://home.hccnet.nl/r.g.voskamp/brakedrum.jpg

Rien, Is it possible that this is a goverment contract-early juice brake drum?
I seem to have a narrower new Bendix shoe set that is 1 10/32 in width. military surplus.
