Here is the rest of the images.

The b/w photo shows the Schloss Kronburg auction arrangement in Cologne of 1953 (BTW, the year when I was born), plus a detail of a few of those six haquebus in the right.

The first watercolor from the Maximilianisches Zeugbuch vol. I shows two iron haquebuts with tiller stocks - this is what my haquebut looked like when first issued in about 1495.

The second watercolor from the same manuscript depicts three haquebuts with mode modern full stocks resembling the present stock of my gun which was made in the 1520's.
