Garland can you post some pictures, The six frame is uncommon for the ten.

D6 T pistol grip 10 ga 32" Looks like a A grade

Hello Garland and Welcome to the PGCA Forum: Please tell us where you live and one of us here can probably recommend someone in your area that can restore your Parker. From the serial number that you providedyour gun is listed in "THE BOOK" as a D6 or A Grade Parker with Damascus barrels built in 1883, a toplever hammer gun, 10 gauge with 32 inch barrels & pistolgrip stock.

If all of this is correct you ave an extremely rare and valuable Parker that is well worth the cost or restoration. Any restoration of this gun should only be attempted by an expert in Parker restorations. You will, undoubtedly, get many posts here and recommendations. If you can make it to Easton Maryland, The Vintagers, Pintail Point toward the end of this month there will be Parker experts there who can furthur advise you. My advice is to go cautiously with this one. YOU DEFINITELY NEED TO ORDER A PGCA LETTER ON YOUR GUN.

Best Regards, George
