Finally Found A Whole One, And I didn't even need to dig it...!

Post by HolzHammer » Mon Nov 26, 2018 6:35 pm

Evening All,
I have FINALLY found a whole one!!! Albeit a bit wonky I am not even going to think about trying to straighten the pin... and the back is sightly askew too but the spring, pin AND catch are all there.....and it was lying on the surface like a shell on a beach...
Doesn't get better it will have pride of place in the cabinet!
All the Best and thanks for looking.
Alexander
