Clothes hanger in 258 head?

Hey guys, I'm new here but I've been reading for awhile. Great group of guys!

Anyway, tonight I was reinstalling the head on my CJ-5 with the 258 motor. I was about to apply the sealant and gasket to the thermostat when I noticed some sort of wire in the head. Wondering what it was, I tugged on it gently and realized it was loose. I pulled it out with a needle nose.

I don't have any pictures of it right now, but if I didn't know any better I'd say that it was piece of wire clothes hanger. There isn't supposed to be some sort of wire in the head somewhere, is there?

Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

The previous owner must have been trying to fish something out of the engine and lost it. That is my best guess.

It could have been some wire from a radiator hose also. Some have spiral wires in them to keep their shape.
