I was recently handed down my great grandfathers AHE 12ga (1909). Thinking about having his initials engraved into it, I can't ever see it being sold.

I can't think of any reason not to. It would certainly commemorate him.

My DHE 16, has "Jos. Gray, Atlanta, Ga." engraved on its shield. Factory letter says the gun was shipped to Anderson Hdw. in Atlanta in 1905. When I look at that shield, I can just imagine it riding along on a mule drawn hunting wagon behind a brace of setters or pointers. With its O frame and 26" cyl/m chokes, the perfect little quail gun.
