Default Case Colors Attributed to Oscar Gaddy

I would be interested in opinions on the Case Colors of this Gun being attributed to the late Oscar Gaddy. Do they look like original Parker Case Colors to you? Sorry about the pictures they came out small for some reason.

The case colors I've seen that were known to have been done by Oscar weren't as 'vibrant' and 'reflective' as those shown.

I'm not saying those aren't Oscars - just not like the ones I've seen.

Drew Hause has pictures of Oscar's case colors - perhaps he'll show them here.

Default Oscar Gaddy case colors

I'm posting two photos of Oscar Gaddy case colors. I know these are photos of a Fox but the colors are his. The gun belongs to me!

My apology for the delay. I have a number of images from the early days of DoubleGunBBS, all small and low resolution, and am reluctant to definitively attribute the case colors to Dr Gaddy.
This was most likely his work.



I've seen an Ithaca, very likely by Dr Gaddy, and the colors were more vivid emerald, indigo and sapphire

Doug built a wonderful shotgun, a masterpiece, for me a few years ago. At least it was "built for me" in my own mind. Bill Murphy
