This appears to be an original rear sight cover with B8872 on it. It looks to be in too good of condition to be from the early 40s. What do you guys think?

The early 40s aren't much older than the mid 40s. It is a non-indent sight cover. No way to take a later spring steel spring with indents and flatten them out. It isn't in great condition, it has seen some corrosion and has been refinished. Is it a real B8872 cover, yes I think so. Is it in original condition and orginal finish, absolutely not.
