Hi Marcus,


Here is a postscript to my comment on that haquebut barrel:

I just noticed that a former fire shield is most probably missing from the pan as well. The left hole must have been meant for it, and it must have been riveted where I marked the spot in red. The hole to the right of the pan trough was for the riveted pivot of the missing, formerly swiveling pan cover.


Best,
Michael
