A letter won't tell you anything about engraving since only the stock book would be available for this gun

Chuck would certainly know. Maybe there could be G&H records.

K, your gun does not appear to be an upgrade to a grade higher than SC, just a standard SC engraving with an inlaid gold pigeon. Your gun is beautiful. Can we see the whole gun with wood showing?

That’s amazing coloration on the floor plate. I’m looking forward to seeing more pics of the rest of the gun. I think you might have something special.

Bill, there are two pictures of SAA 230784 in my article ďThe ABCís of Parker Single Barrel Trap Guns.Ē Volume 27, issue 3, Autumn 2020. No gold inlays.
