Another interesting “Parker Bros.”

I have seen a good amount of interesting variations of the Parker Bros. name that is engraved on the sides of Hammerless guns.

This is the first time I have seen an example like this with the very long tail on the “R”.

I remember seeing a VH like that at a gun show in Augusta, ME about 15 years ago. It also had that same fine “graver walk” border engraving done with a narrower graver.

Yes. They are.
The gun is a very early VH 28g.

nice, reminds one of the old script signatures

but i find the layout planning interesting - the P is thin and curved right up against the action screw border - but then the s is spaced a bit from the o

I had one that looked just like it.

It's the same gun Larry. FYI.
