It sold for $6K plus the buyer's premium. The hammered prices of Parker Reproductions available in this recent RIA are shown in the thread referenced in my previous post above. Here it is again:

I looked at that gun on the RIA website. Does it appear to have the "3" added later or is it just my old eyes? I hope one of our members got it and posts it up.

George, I'm a little confused by your question, we've been discussing Lot #3526, a BHE S/N 12-0098.
Here's a direct link to this particular gun:

Yes Greg
Look at the 4th picture in FULL SCREEN. It's the left side view. The 3 is in a slightly different font and doesn't have the inch (") mark after it. Looks like it was added after it left Japan.

You're absolutely right George, good catch!

Do you impersonate Columbo as a sideline job?

I've got to agree with George on that point.

What is the definition of steel shot barrels and are they unique to the Steel Shot Special model?

The Steel Shot Special model was produced to address the water foul hunters concern shooting the required steel shot shells and the damage they may do to the barrels and their chokes. The chokes are slightly longer than standard chokes on the other Parker Reproductions models. It was observed that longer chokes patterned steel shot more evenly; all tests were done with 3" 1 5/8oz steel #2 shot. The barrels were chrome throughout, unlike the standard Parker Reproduction which didn't have chrome in the choke area. The choke area chrome was added because no one knew at that time the long term effect steel shot would have on the choke area.
