I had already flattened it a bit with pliers anyway, so it's trash now.
It was fully 1mm too big for this frame anyway! I could only get a 25.8mm post to fit and clamp properly, but the post that came out was 26.8mm!!! Hard to believe.

Holy smokes! No wonder it was stuck

Urago, in Nice, France.
They also offered better ones that were sold in much smaller numbers, the "pro" bikes of the day, and supposedly their frames were out-sourced to/from a builder named Cattaneo. Those are worth a lot more money.
