Default Grade 2 "Parker Bros"

Anyone ever see "Parker Bros" in this area on a grade 2?

Not me. Usually Parker Bros. is engraved in an arc inside the curve of the game scene oval.

I think Brian Dudley posted a D grade that had Parker Bros. in the same location, but that one was raised if I my recall functioning. That must have been a year or so back.

This example is how 98% of grade-2 hammerless guns with oval game scene vignette were engraved.

I would say the subject gun is one of the earliest grade-2's engraved with the oval-bordered game scene vignette. Notice it is a smaller oval and does not include the front screw within its border.

I saw this GH on gunbroker and it is a different and very intetesting placement for the name.

There are some real oddities out there. One gun that i regret not buying when i had the chance was a GH that had the bottom motif inside of a ribbon bordered hexagon type shape instead of a circle. It was, so far, the most unique GH i have seen.

I know of only one Grade-2 hammerless with roundel engraving vignettes. It is very likely to be a unique gun. I had offered to buy the gun but the owner chose to keep it.

If the owner is reading this, the offer (or a better one) is still on the table.
