I have tried to be a student of Parker Engraving since I purchased my first Parker only a few years back a CH from about 1905. I my opinion the best engraving period for my taste is in the 160xx-180xxx era. The engraving is deeply cut and the dogs and game birds are well done for a factory made product. My second favorite period is the beginning of the hammerless guns up until about 1900. They are very lightly cut but with more artistic freedom given to the engravers--maybe because they were independent contractors during this period.
