Kevin, As you will recall, that gun was on a table at Baltimore a few years ago, where many questioned it's authenticity.

Yes, I remember it Edgar - I think it's a member of the collector's netherworld right up there with "fully optioned, factory original" 28 ga. Model 12 Winchesters and similar "special order" Parker smallbores whose books always seem to be mysteriously missing from the records. Funny how that happens!
