Bit I have never seen before

So the other day, I was letting my horse graze when someone began walking towards the arena. I immediately noticed their bit because it had two O-rings. Both were the same size. There appeared to only be one bit, but I didn't get a good look. One was attached to the bridle and one was attached to the reins. It was not a Boucher/B-ring bit. Hmm...What do you think?
I cannot find any bit like it online.

Was it maybe a wilson snaffle?
Like this: ( Google Image Result for http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f177/sprimble/wilson-snaffle.jpg )
Or this: ( Google Image Result for http://www.empirefarms.com/images/Hilltop%20Tack%20Supply/HTT%20Wilson%20Snaffle%20Bit.jpg )?
Or maybe I'm way off!

What would one use a Wilson snaffle for? I've never seen one like that before.

Hi,

It sounds as if it could be a Scorrier or a Wilson, both were originally driving rather than riding bits.

The Scorrier has the inner rings through a slot in the mouthpiece, the Wilson has loose rings which give a squeezing effect.

Scourier Bit, scourrier bit, scorrier bit,

Yeah, I think its a Wilson bit. Weird. I wonder why they would use it...Then again, there are some weird boarders. I found a bike chain bit hiding in the corner of the tack room. I was assured it hasn't been used in a long time but it was frightening.
