The Reproductions only have three birds and I've been wondering if the Remington guns (other aspects of the repro engraving are Remington-like) were the model for the repro engraving. Dean, I've forgoten, is that gun from the Remington era?

No this is 1924/5, Parker letter notes gun finished Feb 1925.

Could it be that the frame size is 00 ?

First time for me too Larry. Just goes to show, "never say never".

A 28 ga. of that era should be a 00-frame. Look on the bottom of the barrel lug and see the 28 for the gauge and either one or two 0's for the frame size. It should also have the milled "lightening cuts" in the surface of the water table of the frame.

Dean,
Here's a couple pic's of an early 1900's DH 28 on an O frame as I believe all the early guns were.

No I don't but there are a few for sale on the web that you could look at. Check Puglisi's site I believe he has a couple.

A couple of 0-frame DH guns engraved by the same hand.

Ser. No. 147673 was Rear Adm. Thomas Perry's 20 ga. 28" DH

Ser. No. 149020 was Jessie Alvord Bishop's 28 ga. 24" DHE ordered for her by her husband Henry A. Bishop
