The OP sent me the pictures. They're larger and somewhat easier to see, but still pretty blurry.

Jim says the early 52 had a large dovetail on the receiver bridge for the sight.

It doesn't like like any 52 sight I've ever seen, but I found a very early catalog drawing of a 52, and it does appear to sit in a dovetail.

But... Even at that early stage the 52 sight appears to have had windage adjustment knobs on the rear base, which this sight doesn't have.
