Recent Reproduction I purchased at a great price due to a repaired cracked stock. Shot a box of sells through it but it still use some structural and cosmetic work

We've discussed this particular 28ga. Repro's stock previously, but this wood is so unique I thought I'd post it in this little library of Repro wood out of fear it may get buried and lost forever. You may or you may not like it, you might even say it should never have been used, but you have to admit it's mighty striking, eh?

I just love a big patch of sap wood in my wrist.

I do not know if it was the same gun or not, but there was one just like it for sale at the Southern this year.

This is Turkish. Not the best pic at all. However big sapwood on the one side. Good thing is the blank is fine on the other side and all the sapwood will turn out. I'm surprised the Japanese stockmaker used that one. It however is quite stunning.

Still pics of this particular piece of wood does not do it justice, only by viewing it in person are you able to appreciate how the figure changes. Top-to-bottom and head-to-toe, the appearance of this stock is constantly changing under varying light conditions and viewing angles--the dark areas change to light and the light areas change to dark, kind of like vertical fiddleback, but with a checkerboard effect instead.
Most unique Stock iv seen. Beautiful

Here is a look at the stock of an early Prototype 20 gauge DHE I recently picked up, serial number P-36 on trigger guard. This one was new in the Winchester box still wrapped in wax paper.

I'm assuming this is Claro?
