This is an original prototype Combiner Glass. The Combiner Glass is designed to fold down flat across the exit lens and this early design has a single pin glued in place on the left-hand side of the glass to support the locking mechanism. This was changed on the production version to a support strip down the Glass which suggests that the pin alone was not strong enough.
