In addition to 2 of the rivets being different from the 3rd one, why are the 2 without any real wear? Just for starters. More photos of details are needed, but lots of concerns here.

Thanks Andy and Mike.

The 1.8 grams equals about 27 grains, so that make sense for a 6mm Flobert. I have seen "Gezogen" spelled out in a number of rifles as well. Always wondered how the "BUG"...

No, the shell size has nothing to do with the date of manufacture. Most pre-war DDs fall within that lot number range.
