Default The Other Guys

The bulk of our restoration effort is spent on "Top Five" graded doubles. The other double makers from the Golden Age may not be the same standard in fit and finish, but are just as beautiful in their own right.

The brands in order:
Harrington and Richardson
Ithaca Flues Grade 2
Baker Paragon
Meriden Model 58
Ithaca NID
Syracuse A Grade
