This one only surprises me as the handlebar clamp bolts are missing, (they are of themselves unique) and the steerer cap is awol.

Also, this is a longer stem, also not seen often, the French bars often have a longer forward "throw" so a long stem is not used as often to achieve a good fit on the bike.
I believe Gran Bois is doing retro's. I was interested in the Herse stem, up until it hit 4 bills.
