Default 1883 twist any info please

What I know the gun is a parker twist 1883 the serial number is 29395. The bottom of the barrel Has a H and the numbers 5 and 12 that is underlined. I believe the 17700 is the order number. Here are a couple of pics.
What I cant find is the grade.
Thank you

It appears to be extremely loose on face. It is a 10 gauge on a 3 Frame and has non-Parker hammers.

I hope you didn’t buy it....

no sir got it from my grandfather that got it from his great grandfather. So my great great. Looks like it will be a wall hanger with a lot of stories.

It is a wonderful family heirloom that will hang in a place of prominence.

Brad, What Dean says, I wish I had a Parker handed down, I just have my dads old 12ga single barrel and I can not find a name on the gun any where, congrats on being on the receiving end! Gary
