It looks identical to a 6309-704X crown but at the base it appears to have a gear built into it, it came on a 6309 and it was performing in a fashion but not 100% correctly, any help identifying it would be appreciated, thanks.

Just looking at it again through a lupe i am wondering could it be the threaded sleeve pulling out of the crown ? also the stem looks to have been messed with.

That's a 70W22NS1 (6309, et. al. dive cases) that's been molested to the point it is coming apart.

The outer ring with the teeth holds the gasket. At the factory, it is pressed into the crown's shell after the gasket is placed, the teeth ensuring a good grip on the shell.

Unlike some of the earlier dive crowns (6105, etc.) it is relatively easy to replace these gaskets without tearing the crown apart.

Thanks for confirming my thoughts Jonathan, after looking at it closely through my lupe i could see that it was "pulled" out uneven which made me think it was as you said.
