I once owned an 1866 trapdoor whose buttplate had Five little dots, punched into the hollow of the butt plate. All were in a tight fitting row. Their arrangement and location suggested that someone had intended to keep a counting of coup where nobody would notice it. Maybe it was at such a fight? Instead of being solid, the breech block had the two dished out areas on the underside with the rib running between them.
