Default Waterfowl on a Grade 3

There are two (2) rising ducks on this 12 ga. on # 2 frame, 30 inch 4 blade crolle Damascus, made in 1895.

Saw the engraving on this one at a local show. It was the most interesting aspect of this example. Tried but did not make a deal with the owner, so I do not have this one in hand to get better pictures.

The first picture is enhanced as much as I know how to do so the engraving might be easier to see. The second picture is not enhanced.

John, I can see three (3) ducks on the floor plate. I noticed it first in the enhanced photo and then was easier to see in the other. They all look as if they are in flight.

Default Good eye!

David, you have a good set of eyes. I want you in the blind so you can spot the greenheads coming in! I'll keep my head down and wait for you to call the shot.

To see the 3rd bird, I have to go to a big computer screen. My iPad could not cut it.

And I saw the engraver's work with my own eyes.

How many do you see here?

Ground bird w long tails ~ Phesants.

Ground birds w short tails ~ Heath Hens, Sharptails, Prairie Chickens.

Not poor engraving ~ Interpretive Early Americana artwork.

Ain’t it good to live here ! ?

Now ~ What do you thin Jefferson would have carried, a Parker or a Fox ?

Great looking birds on this old gun. The Setter on the side is a bit worn but the feathering on the chest, stomach and tail is really cool. A2DF85BD-1600-496E-BB27-D849AB73F445.jpgAEBF9F83-FE85-40B3-A89A-7E3C670E4676.jpg
