I find it interesting it would have a date engraved on it. Could have been a presentation or award gun of some sort.

My guess is that the initials are "S D C" with the "D" being the last name of the owner. Look at the engraved grip cap of Charles S Parker's gun in TPS pg 631 for the similarity in the style of the S and the C. FWIW

Brian, it is my belief also that it is a presentation gun, hence the date.

If you can negotiate the search function for LA84foundation.com, looking at the date of the presentation compared to shoot held on that date, you may find mention of a presentation of a shotgun. Arthur DuBray gave away a bunch of Parkers as prizes, spent time on the west coast visiting shoots and taking orders. My 20 gauge Trojan grade came from Lewald and Schlueter in 1917 also. I was able to find information on this dealer on google.com including an offer to sell a picture of the store itself by the local historical society. I opted to print the picture on the google screen rather than spend money on a better print. Captain DuBray promoted the use of the 20 gauge on his visits to California and many of them are found with his name attributed on the order sheet.

Unfortunately, I found that my normal search vehicle on the LA84foundation.com website, the Sporting Life paper, has entries that end in 1916.
