The markings are correct for early hammer less As I said, the configuration is correct. Sometimes the earlier the gun, the more it departs from standards

The general rule for Whitworth barrels is that they are marked with both the wheat sheave and tube serial number. Not all are so marked however.

There are many fine and correct Parkers that are not in the known records. There are also some made up guns. This pair presents an exercise in know your Parkers.
