But I think that it is not early 15 century. I guess it much later


Now that you beat me at my own game ( ) I have to admit you were right: that curious double barrel haquebut actually should be dated 'late 15th c.' as well!

Thank you so much again, and of course additional images would be great if you could take them!

And as to the hook, I of course agree it was either cut of broken off.

Best,
Michael
