Converto 0886564

I picked this Converto up the other day. It appears to be fairly original so I took some detail photos. It is from the September 13 1944 contract #0886464. It has the thin lunette and regular combats.

It did have two different chains that held the pivot pins in place underneath it.

Great looking Converto, I restored a truly basket case used on a Farm and Junk yard for many years, could you take a photo of the Lunette Pin T pin is there a boss or spring loaded feature? Good Luck you are half way restored and will have a rare piece of history.
