Default Damascus Identification:

I think I see three full scrolls, bordered by half scrolls. Parker Four Iron D4 Turkish (Oxford) is my best guess, though Id appreciate knowing what others see. The barrels patterns seem to be well matched. There is a 4 stamped on the underside flat.

I agree with you Bruce. Unless it is a CH the 4 should be on the forward part of the right barrel flat with a D in close proximity, indicating 4-iron Damascus.

Yes, D4 as I had suspected. And it is a Grade 3 as indicated by the 3 stamp at the breech end of the barrel flat.

Beautiful barrels - looks like the original finish too.
