I don't think that the missing round pieces were for attachment, they are too low and studs are placed above and will disturb any leather slings.

So you'll hate me, but please remember, that our forum is open to discussions. And we never know what we will get when we post an item.

Hi Both,

I agree it has been cast, the holes and some ridges in the inner curves let me think that you are right. This is a nice piece and doesn't look recent at all.

I agree 100% with the above
