I think I remember now... you had a French baker make them up for you according to your instructions. Looks like a hamburger bun.

Glad the rifle worked out too.

Where I come from that is known as 'Mucky fat'
Used to be available on a Sunday morning in the local pub, spread on bread with sliced raw onions in vinegar and salt to sprinkle on it. :razz: :razz: :razz: :razz:

Looks like at least a few of the serial numbers match. Don't see any pitting in the metal shown. That's a good sign of previous storage history. Now all you got to do is put it back together again... :bigsmile:
