Chimney foundation bolt

Any idea what this bolt is for at the base of a chimney? Only thing I can think of was a form bolt of some kind but it was the only one so ???

I wonder if maybe it is a misplaced sill plate bolt that was beaten over rather than cut off to make room for the brick ?


I’d say that’s probably a pretty good guess.

Impossible to tell from the pic, but it was about a foot away from the foundation stem wall. This is just the chimney’s foundation.
