Odd that the first time I saw (the 20 gauge I think but I'm not sure) in its poorly refinished condition was at the Chantilly Virginia show, being displayed by Julia in preparation for auction. I was used to seeing Jim's Parkers in all levels of condition, but this was the low level. Like some of you, I have a hard time keeping the two A-1s straight. I"m not sure Larry Baer accurately described the gun with the ruined inlays. A talented engraver could repair almost any damage done to inlays or engraving. I'll have to review my Baer books to see if I can identify the gun he is describing. I doubt that the "ruined gun" is in that condition today.

We still haven't seen a letter for this gun. The home page says there are records for this 28-gauge, 234200. Is that how the Fleishmann connection was made? Knowing how it looked in Larry Baer's books we know it is not "......an all original Parker ...." as Herschel said. From the RIA auction April 2018 --
