I don't recall who on this forum originally said that they thought that the screen was some sort of fuel economy device; however, apparently that is what it is.  I vaguely remember carburetor base screens from the '50s and '60s that were advertised to deliver "miracle" fuel mileage.  Here is a link to some information on an attempt to patent the idea:

I am restoring my very original '48 wagon and just pulled the carb. I have no reason to believe this carb has ever been off and yet there is a screen pressed into the gasket. Anyone else ever seen a screen in there?
