Default Interesting GH floor plate

Saw this one today and found it to be interesting, and not a design I have seen before on floor plates of Gs. I am almost curious if it was polished off and reengraved. Its nice, but just doesn't look like the engraving I would expect on a 126xxx GH.

That game scene is original Meriden/Parker but as Brian pointed out, the surrounding heavy-handed scroll is a more recent embellishment.

The engraving on the floor plate of the Gunbroker gun is similar to the one in this thread but it is not the same gun. If you compare carefully you will see differences.

The picture I posted is from a gun on gunbroker, my mistake I had thought it was the same number. The game scene is,obviously the samw, but it was the engraving around the circle I found surprising

I think there were a number of different variations of the GH circle. This one is in the 60K range.

I'm beginning to suspect the engraving on these guns was not done by a computer controlled engraving machine. This sort of variation is just one piece of evidence. As barbaric as it sounds, it seems as though these guns were engraved by some sort of sharp metal object, driven by a striking surface at the end of a stick, all powered and guided by an organic organism.
