Default I need a hint

I recently acquired an exposed hammer double. I disassembled it and found it to be in pretty good condition, but the barrel release lever spring / assembly is missing. I'd really like to install something resemblind the original, but I'd like to have a hint on what the original actually looked like. Am I wrong to think all guns of this vintage would have similar mechanisms? I'm hoping someone can show me a diagram or photo of their gun barrel release lever spring so I can start to fabricate / install something that will work. Photo attached. I've got my fingers crossed. I'm disappointed in myself for not being able to "imagine" what the original looked like. Help.

Any side lock will have the same basic setup whether it has exposed hammers or not. Basically you need a lever to push the pawl over with. You might if it's a common brand find an original on gunbroker or some other website

Considering I'm new at the shotgun game I wouldn't know what a standard spring assembly would look like. That's my problem. This is an English gun, W.J. Golcher, with English proof marks. 1870s or so. Would a "standard" assembly use a similar pin location and slot? I'm still trying to visualize it.

Linda, No help so far. Should I repost with a different title? All I want is someone to show me what the spring assembly looks like. I found one while surfing the web that looked like it might work, but I'm still a bit iffy about the slot. I would think there used to be some sort of soldered piece to support the spring. Any suggestions?
