Help identifing old shotgun

I am trying to restore an old family heirloom shotgun, it has no makers name on it. The only name is "Standard" in Olde English script on the LH side, it is a single barrel break action gun probably made by Crescent or H&R or one of the early companies. It was probably made between 1900 to 1920, it has patent dates of Dec 18,91; Aug 11,96; Aug 14,00; May 27,02 . that is all of the writing on it. It has a serial number on the lug, it is about 4700 or so, don't have it here with me.

I am looking for imformation as to what was in the circular opening on the right side, about 0.80 inches in diameter, about 1/8 inch deep, with a 1/4 inch through hole into the center of the reciever centered on the .8" hole. If I can find out what was there, I can try to make it. It appears to have been a retainer for the hinge pin, since it intercepts the edge of the pin.

Can anyone help?

Just found my photobucket file only produces a very small image, go to here:
