Odd that the first time I saw (the 20 gauge I think but I'm not sure) in its poorly refinished condition was at the Chantilly Virginia show, being displayed by Julia in preparation for auction. I was used to seeing Jim's Parkers in all levels of condition, but this was the low level. Like some of you, I have a hard time keeping the two A-1s straight. I"m not sure Larry Baer accurately described the gun with the ruined inlays. A talented engraver could repair almost any damage done to inlays or engraving. I'll have to review my Baer books to see if I can identify the gun he is describing. I doubt that the "ruined gun" is in that condition today.

We still haven't seen a letter for this gun. The home page says there are records for this 28-gauge, 234200. Is that how the Fleishmann connection was made? Knowing how it looked in Larry Baer's books we know it is not " all original Parker ...." as Herschel said. From the RIA auction April 2018 --
