Default 10ga aahe

I've seen a listing for an aahe 10ga for sale. It is in rough shape in my opinion but not terrible. Wondering if an aahe is worth that much. I still need to confirm that it truly is an AA hammer with matching numbers. If just like to be better prepared when it comes to negotiating the sale. My current Parker's are D grade and in pretty great shape,.so the idea of buying one with some rust and pitting is giving me a bit of angst, even if it truly is an AA

Unless I am missing something the Parker Story doesn't list any AA 10 Gauge hammer guns being made. As for AAH or AAHE(hammerless) 10ga. guns there were 2, 1 with 30" and 1 with 32" barrels.

It may be an A grade hammer gun(grade 6 not 7), I would double check the listing/pictures and ask the seller for more information.

Some honest or even hard wear wouldn't bother me if it is something special(and the price is right).

I believe there was just a AHE or AH 10 ga sold on GI for 7900$ .
Looks like it only took them a few days to sell it .

Follow-up to my initial post. Turns out the gun is an early E grade, not an AAHE. Thought it was to good to be true.

Wow, what a gun. Solid as a rock and all there. I wish I could make out the serial number in the pictures. Probably a world's fair gun. Who bought it? Thanks, Milton.

I confess it's mine. 83621, Boston Sportsmen Show gun 1898.

March 19th 1898 Sporting Life
PARKER BROS., MERIDKN, CONN. One of the largest assortment of shot guns was shown by this old and well established firm. They had a sample of all the different grades, from the cheapest hammer and hainmerless to the very finest pigeon gun costing $400. Over 80 guns in all were exhibited here. The light and pretty 16-gaupe, the medium weight and popular 12-gauge, the heavier 10-gauge and the big 8-bore were shown side by side. A special sample exhibited was the new grade pigeon gun with Titanic steel barrels, which possess wonderful strength. These guns list at $100, $150 and $200, and are bound to please any shooter who possesses one. A. W. Du Bray and L. C. Parker were in charge.
