Default Original DHE with 31 inch Titanic steel barrels

These barrels have not been cut. They measure out 31 inches. How rare would this configuration be? They have Walter King's stamp on them.

Edgar, pardon my ignorance but what is TPS? Do you mean temporary protective status? Lol. Sounds like I should keep it for awhile longer

Allen, you'll get as much pleasure from The Parker Story, as any of your Parkers. Rarely a week goes by when I'm not investigating some detail in it. My copy is nearly as dog-eared as Dean's Serialization Book

Allen, Do you have a Research Letter from Chuck on this DHE? What does the letter say?

It was originally made with 30 inch Damascus barrels but sent back to Parker and rebarreled with 31 inch Titanic steel barrels. WK is stamped on the barrel flats.
