I have a 1 frame 12 gauge G grade with V/P checkering pattern on the wrist. I looked under the trigger guard when I brought it home years ago and the serial number matched the gun. There was also an 0 separate from the sn to indicate grade. I got a letter but it made no mention of stock replacement or checkering. I'll have to dig it out of the safe and check the forend pattern.

Default Wrong Checkering Pattern ?

Thank you all for your comments and observations ! While I checked the serial number on the butt stock ( matched the action,barrels and forend iron) I didnt check the forend wood serial number. I will check it this evening

Errors were made. I have a CHE that has the same serial number on all parts. Even the underside of the trigger guard but the top of the trigger guard is engraved off by one thousand. The gun is 173xxx but the outside of the trigger guard is 172xxx.

We have seen similar “typos” in Parker serial number stamps.
