Default Runge Grouse/Woodcock Examples

Does anyone maybe have any examples of Grouse or Woodcock engraved by Runge? Or at least in the Remington Era of Parker production.

Thanks

Default Grouse

Brian this is a grouse. Not sure who the artist was. SN 202xxx Not my gun, BHE 20. I think the engraving of the grouse looks shallow and kind of "off". I used to have another Grouse engraving and am still searching.

There was just one shown recently with three or four woodckck in flight on the floor plate. I’ll try to find it…

Well I didn’t find the thread or the post but I did copy and download the pic of the floor plate with the 4 woodcock engraved, to the best of my knowledge, by Runge.
