Is this a proper front site for this 1890. I don’t recognize it, but then I’m not up to speed on My 1890’s.

No–it’s what’s left of a Beach sight that’s had the globe broken off.

As Clarance mentioned it is the remanent of a Beach Combination front sight.  It could have been special ordered on any Winchester rifle back in the day.

This is what it should look like.
