Iam not saying it is not a genuine piece and I have not had it in hand, however there are some points that I really do not like.

the transition from hexagonal to circular, at the center piece , looks a bit strange at such an early gun.
the surface of the casting has some traces of "operation" and is not covered with the patina that you would expect at a river find.

best,
jasper
