Default Help identifying this label.?

When I was going through Parker paperwork that I had on hand, I found this piece inside of a catalog. It appears to be a reproduction case label or something of the sort. But I have not seen one just like it before.

Is anyone familiar with it?

Did Parker ever use any labeling with "Bro."?

Nope - not that I have ever seen. It's always been Parker Bros. or on very early things it was sometimes Parker Bro with superscript 's.

What proof or documentation do you have that they weren't a Parker agent on the West Coast.

They were but they never used the trade name Parker Bro. which its the subjwct of this thread.

Further, A.W. duBray was the agent and we know just about everything about him.

This is about the same size as a gun case trade label would be.

Brian,

Is there anything to suggest it's not just something someone threw together as a cheap reproduction piece to hang or post somewhere? Or perhaps even to go in a case as you mentioned. What kind of stock is it on? I guess what I'm getting at is I could make that pretty quick and print it out right here on my PC.
