Mills Operator Owl - broken lever/hook on the coin slot

Hello dear forum,
a few months ago I bought my first one-armed bandit and have already learned a lot from reading the posts in this great forum. I'm busy restoring... and only now did I discover a problem with the coin slot. The penny does not remain behind the “Magnifying Glass” after the arm has been activated. The problem is probably a broken lever. Can someone post a photo of what the lever/hook looks like? I'll then try to recreate it.

Many greetings from Germany

Joshma, I think it looks like this. I did have a Poinsettia in the past which was missing this part. I bought it from ebay in the usofa.

Hello dutchboy,
thank you very much for the picture.
Now I know what the part should look like. I'll get the file...
