Just have to show you this :-)

The Shutters inner wall has a hole in it ! Big enough to accommodate the tip of a wooden toothpick !

Guess manufacturing was sometimes a problem in those days in the Eastern Block (Poland in this case).
Sourcing and maintaining the machinery and tools necessary for this kind of fine mechanical work was no doubt not easy.

The inner wall at the place of the hole is just very thin and any deviation of the machinery tool could have caused it to be even thinner than specified.
After that any obstruction by metal chippings or a slip of a tool later on in production could have breached it.
