I guess the key point I was trying to make was not simply look at the asking prices posted anywhere. GB does offer the ability to differentiate between the levels at which people pony up real dollars instead of the la-la land of the advertised marketplace. Excepting super rare guns, given the tremendous number of guns that go through there, it is likely the largest database of real prices anywhere. The big auction houses get a lot of attention and but don't move a lot of guns in reality. I believe the current LS&B listings exceed three months or so of Holt's listing, for instance. They all start at a penny and will all sell. If you are after a ball park that doesn't include anybody's opinion (good or bad), they have the tools to find it if you do it properly.

Is this the same gun? https://parkerguns.org/forums/showthread.php?t=9732

I was trying to figure out if the trigger guard was case colored. These pictures make me think the frame was re-cased colored? I could be wrong about that and it could just be the pictures.

Jay, in reference to the link you posted and the pictures included, it certainly does look like the trigger guard was case colored which, to the best of my knowledge, contradicts popular opinion and evidence that the trigger guards have always been niter-blued, leading me to think that the frame and trigger guard may have been re-case-colored.
If someone can post pictures of a minty Parker in a similar action type and grade with hi-res pics of the trigger guard this would help us all to make a better determination.

Here's N2505 and the butt plate and trigger guard are clearly niter-blued.

Yeah, that case coloring on the guard does not look legit at all. And the level of surface pitting on the guard does not jive with the amount of color. The gun has had work done, in that area at least.

Something just looked off to me and since the gun had been discussed here before I thought I would chime in. On the one top picture of the receiver it didn't look like original case colors to me.

So I sent Josh Loewensteiner a private message and also sent an email on his website. I have not received any response (been a week). Does anyone know him personally or keep in contact with him?

I will in the meantime try to find an appraiser that is impartial and knowledgeable on Parkers.

Josh has always been very prompt with me. With the upcoming auction, I suspect his hair is on fire.

As part of the appraisal, I would have the chambers/bores measured as it appears the subject gun is a 12b and not a 14 gauge. Not that that would effect value too much, but just so you can represent it correctly.
