On GunBroker forums; Ask the experts, about this front sight

Is this a Beach front sight or perhaps a Lyman?

 

tried to post here originally but couldn’t get the picture links to work.

thanks in advance.

There is no picture but a beach has pins for the pivots and the Lyman has screws for pivots.

The sight in question is a Beach Combination. It does have remnants of the original gold wash on it.
