Re Re M88 with 73 lock and plate, replacement

I just double checked the serial on the receiver and it is actually 539996, the 3 looked like an 8 on the initial glance. There is no letter at the end but the serial is stamped far enough over to the left to allow room for it. There is a patch of minor pitting where the breechblock contacts the receiver which could be concealing a letter but there are no visible signs of any text under it. PYou are correct, the hammer is bent off-centre. I have sourced a replacement lockplate complete with correct hammer, I am just trying to source a breechblock. Al has one listed which I enquired about and he confirmed it is available, I am waiting on postage costs and payment details so I can buy it but it is good to know the parts can be transferred so I can fix this one up.
