Bruce, Thank you for explaining the confusion, perhaps only on my part. So, there are Grade 7s marked with a single A and later, grade 7s marked with AA.
It's said that English is the most difficult language to learn, and Meriden must be the most difficult English.
Do you know if these guns are reverse choked, as so many European pairs are?


btw, I don't know what the red face is either

If you hold your cursor over the red face it says "Angry"...?

Maybe angry that I do not have a pair like them. This is probably the closest I will be able to get. Great photos as usual from Bruce. Thanks for sharing. Bob

I was so dazzled by the guns, I didn't even notice the missing safeties and rib extensions.

Those are examples of why Parker Bros was and is considered Americas finest. I wonder if those guns were ever fired once they left the factory?

Beautiful pair. It's difficult to tell from the photos but do these have an early style wear plate on the barrel lugs?

It's also interesting that the gold initial shield placement is slightly different, or maybe the grip checkering point is just extended further back on the one stock.
