G grade engraving variations
 
4 Attachment(s)
Was looking at some of my g grades this morning and noting the variations of the engraving. These 4 range in serial number from 88,000 to 111,000

Mills, what year/serial number is that bottom GH with the pheasants(?) engraved on it?

Yep, right around the time that several states had declared an open season on pheasants.

Interesting observation

I like the stylized engraving of birds (and dogs) on Parkers, but I know that others desire greater realism. I think the pre-1920S iterations are more to my liking than those that come after. I find G engraving to be a very satisfactory blend of coverage and cost.

A question to Dean...when did they open the season on turnips? :):)

Turnips, being an indigenous species, required no time to establish themselves, as did the non-native pheasants, and they have been harvested ever since man first stepped upon this continent. :corn:
