Those are spectacular 3 Iron Bernard I tubes, and I've only seen a single example on a Lefever; a C grade.

Drew, Sara Lefever has a set she had made into a lamp. Unfortunately they had been cut to something like 22 inches but they were a special set of barrels having been made expressly for, and the rib engraved as such, to a surname familiar to most Lefever collectors, one F.A. Elliott.
Breck Gorman refinished them.

See the thread titled Lefever Lamp.

I own a Lefever C 10ga with 30" Bernard Barrels. Circa 1887. It also has a Laminate bottom rib! Serial number 9874.

I have my barrels scheduled to go to Breck on June 1. They are B grade barrels from my recently acquired D grade Lefever.

I like to think Burt Becker did the barrel work on my C grade circa 1887 as Burt didn't leave Lefever until 1889.

Here is an AHE with a Bernard top rib. Hard to see through the matting, but its there.

Beautiful work as always Breck. A bit atypical for an AHE to have D4

Your barrel and I do see the Bernard checkerboard pattern



This is another Parker with Bernard I with a different rib pattern
