Default Original showroom pages?

Well these look like the real thing to me. How many of those original showroom catalogs are known to exist?

They seem to be freestanding pages, not part of a Salesroom Catalog. I also would like to meet the buyer.

I saw those when the listing was live. Great pieces for sure! I think the opening price was around $450.

They seem to be part of the 1934 Salesman catalogue, that was issued after the sale of Parker to Remington, the original was in a covered binder with a number in the back as to who it was issued, I have an original and I think Murphy does too? the original had all the offerings of Parker and Remington shotguns of the time, Gary

Not a chance. They were pictures from the 1895 Salesman"s Portfolio. No hammer guns in the 1934 portfolio. I still want to know who bought these pages.
