1926-27 Model T Coupe trim piece. I took it off two years ago and forgot about it. It is about 24.4" long with three screw holes and it has a piece of rubber the fits into the groove. Now I need to what it is and where it goes. I need to put it someplace.....no jokes please....

Sounds like it may be the door glass anti-rattler. It goes on the door frame where the glass extends out of the door.
Holds the door glass rubber U channel at the top of the door, the U points down and contacts the window glass when the window is all the way up. Not sure if that is what Ken was saying or not.
The new rubber is available from the usual vendors as a 1928 p/u door window weather strip. The metal channel is NOT available. Burn the old rubber out of the channel and reuse the metal strip for the new rubber.
Someone also told me it could be a "sweeper" for the door and that e thought that it went at the bottom of the door?
Well....it's not the anti rattler for the door. I just checked Mac's and a couple other sites. Mac's anti rattler part number is 28-22185-1. Not the same part that this one is.
Picture is from an older posting by another member back in 2008 of your trim piece installed on the door. Look at the inside window track space at the top of the door and you will see some captured nuts that will just happen to line up with the screw holes in your trim strip. Take the old rubber out of the metal strip, line up the new rubber from a 1928 model A closed cab pick up available from the usual suppliers, punch clearance holes in the rubber, then slide the rubber on the metal channel you have, then attach the assembly to inside top window track space of your door with round head screws. Be sure to make the clearance holes larger than the screw heads to countersink the screws to prevent them from contacting the glass. By the way, the 26-27 coupe doors are the same as the 1928 closed cap pick up. Many suppliers sell door parts in the model T catalog that do not actually fit a model T, the parts in the model A catalog are correct and are usually higher quality, that includes window regulator, glass retainer strip, lock/latch parts, and rubber parts.
Are the holes beveled for screws or are they straight through for tacks? It looks like the strips tacked to hide the seams on the back body panels of my 25 Fordor.
Thank you, Jeff. I did just that this morning trying to figire it out. The holes did line up but one end just doesn't want to fit so I didn't think it was it. I'll take another look when I get home from work.....Thanks again
OK...I am convinced that it goes at the top of the doors. Thank you everyone for the help and input on this. And I need to find another one for the other door. Anyone have one for sale?
