Default Parker Stock Badges and Shields

Now I know some would rather rather watch Fox news 24/7 and get all worked up but when you come down, here are some interesting photos.

Thanks Bruce
Engraved shields are too uncommon. And when you do see them engraved, there is no way to decipher them. I wish that was a software program that you could enter the 3 initials and it would give you names that match. I'm sure NSA has one.

Very nice Bruce and "Turnip Farmer" of the Gloden Fleece.

Of the initials displayed on those shields and caps are the corresponding names known?

My DH 10 had an engraved shield, but the engraving was too worn out when it came into my possession. I have a good mind to get it re-engraved in a period correct manner.

Very cool and thanks for sharing these photos

AH 12ga

Many are aware of the significance of the name Fletcher in the history of the United States Navy.

That's very nice Bruce. I think Rear Admiral Thomas Perry may have been a bit more conservative in his choice of graded Parkers - in 1908 he chose a 20 gauge DH.

Lovely wood and a historically significant gun.

Is the butt plate horn?

Thank you Bruce.

No, that's a very nicely done leather covered pad that Abe Chaber did for me. When I bought the gun the stock had been cut and a horrible recoil pad had been poorly installed. I have no clue where the skeleton butt plate went to, but it did have one originally.
