Cinelli Oyster Stem

Hey, I did a search and found a 2 year-old thread about this stem. But, it was no help.

I have a NOS Oyster stem that I was planning to use. While I was inspecting it, I turned it on it's side and one of the hinge pins fell out. It slid back in with zero resistance. I proceeded to remove the other pin with ease. Is this normal? Is anyone familiar with or use this stem? I'm kinda wary about using it. Thanks for any info.

install a bar, tighten securely, see if pins remove easily. If they do, you have a nice paper weight.
