Very nice Jay.

Interesting that William Avery was the chief engraver in that period (1877 - 1887) and that Harry Gough who had been an engraving contractor in England came to work at Parker Bros. in 1883, so we know they weren't engraved by Gough.

I would really like to see examples known to have been engraved by Avery.
