The object, of course, isn't in the least mysterious. It's a gun, with the gun lock showing. The object is for someone to be able to say what sort (very specifically) of gunlock this is. The country of manufacture and some idea of period would gain extra marks, or rather, kudos.
This next picture is of the same gun, showing the butt plate. The butt trap in the centre of the plate was missing, and this week I have been making (and engraving, en suite) the missing butt trap. The next part of the Mystery Object game is for you to tell me (again specifically) what the butt trap would have been made to contain.
In fairness, I must warn you that this particular Mystery Object competition is
AN ABSOLUTE STINKER.
I doubt that even Crowbard, on a good day, will be able to answer this one in the required detail. Still, have a bash chaps (and, of course, chapesses).
