I love that gun although I am not sure what you would hunt with it

I thought the Fleischman A1S was a 20 gauge two-barrel set...? Is there another?

Default A-1 Spec.

Interesting that it only has one fence on the breech balls, but I am not that well versed on very high grade Parkers. Essentially a one off type of gun and any thing would be possible. Very interesting and beautiful. M

There is another Dean. I heard the 20 gauge was butchered by some second rate gunsmiths

What can I say about that, that gun has just about everything that I could want. Well almost, except the price tag. Good spot Mark on the rib on the bolsters. The A1S typically has three. The word typically is the key.

Gauges smaller than 20 have a single bead.

Right Randy, except in the smaller gauges like 28... even in the 20 gauge A1S there are exceptions to the rule.

I handled the 20 gauge when it was on display by Julia's at the Concours d'Elegance at the Vintager's event at Sandanonna about fifteen years ago.

It was "refinished" after it sold at Julia's auction and the next time it went to auction it sold for about half the amount it had previously sold for.
I will say though, it was a hard-used gun and could certainly have used a proper refinish/resto.
