Original Parker guns have very little straw. Only small amounts around the breech balls and edges usually. The more blues closer to the edges the better to look more original and correct.
Too much straw on re-colors just means that the person doing the job has not worked pit a process to replicate the factory look. Of course variation from job to job is going to exist.

Costing case colors with all sorts of protective coatings is something that some people do. To try and protect and preserve the colors. I personally do not care for this and never do this to any of my guns or guns that I have colored. To me, the coatings can usually effect the look of the colors and make them look undesirable.
They were not coated at the factory, so why coat them now if you are trying to replicate factory finishes. The same goes for Damascus finish for me.
