The proper borders are on the wrist. VERY worn, but visible in a couple areas. I can see it at the bottom of the grip above the cap and also at the rear spur. When you recut enough worn original checkering you get pretty well versed in finding such things.

Everything about the wrist and forend look completely right to me by way of how original Parker checkering will wear over 100 years of use.

The only thing that strikes me as a little odd is the noticable difference in wear between the wrist and forend. I woukd expect it to be the other way around.

What the OP stated is correct, it is a grade 2 gun with grade 0/1 checkering on it. I personally just chalk it up as a factory oddity.
