Seeking information to identify a FW190 wreck in Norwegian littoral area

I've recently discovered a FW190 wreck in sea near a former Luftwaffe airfield in West-Norway - Fliegerhorste Herdla.
Can anyone help me identify the fighter, with the following specification?;
  • Markings on port side of fuselage - 16 or 1G/Balkenkreuz/one unrecognizable letter, number or tactical marking
    • The letter numbers are all white or all yellow with no outline
    • The balkenkreuz is black with white outline, and no (second) outer outline in black
  • Markings on starboard side is not recognizable
  • No fuselage band
  • No noseband on cowling
  • Possible one-colour spinner
  • Black swastika with white outline on tail
  • No visible werkenumber on tail
  • The balkenkreuz on topside of main wings is black with white outline, and no (second) outer outline in black
  • No visible emblem on cowling and fuselage
  • No visible camouflage pattern on the plane
Most likely date of crash is autumn 1943, with reference to eyewitnesses to the incident.
