Default X Frame lifter?

Just got my first two Parkerís in my hands. The Lifter model is serial 1301 and has an X stamped on the Frame and barrel. On the barrel it seems the X is over stamped on a V. A little confused since I canít find any of that in the book or online. The chamber measures .854 which would indicate a 10 gauge. Anyone have any thoughts.

Just guessing here. The Roman numeral X could stand for ten gauge.

I had thought that as well, but the X over the V on the barrel made me reconsider.

As much as I've tried I can't see the "V". Hopefully someone can solve the mystery.
Care to share any more photos? The Damascus patterns look really nice.

Closer photo. Thought it was a V, but It maybe a second X underneath. Hard to tell.

Unintentional double stamp.

Or an intentional well struck X over a poorly struck X

The PB in the shields on both barrels and the 10 and D on the left barrel is interesting. I for one would like to see pictures of the entire gun including the serial numbers.

The P.B. In the shield is relatively common on Lifters. Can’t speak to the D or the 10.
