Inspired by Norm's loading gate I decided to have a go. 
Here's my very first go, a few thing learned so the future ones should be better. Top one is mine and the bottom is a reproduction from Switzerland Guisan sent me. The face of mine is a bit rough from the first time stamping the button, had to pound it back flat.

Thanks Norm, few things I need to fix in the process but not bad for the first shot.
