Good location. Any woodcock covers up that way?

Has anyone else ever seen the Parker Bros.that high on the frame before?
I would like to see more pictures of that gun.

It’s certainly not the norm but we see such anomalies from time to time.

That engraver probably got scolded.

Perhaps he had just finished a "G" and 'forgot' that this one was not to be that grade. Then straightened it out immediately instead of putting Parker on a slight radius. Certainly didn't hide it by then.

What is the scratch or whatever on the barrel above the forend joint? Is this a sleeved gun?

Jeff Kuss 11-27-2020 08:19 AM

It's a 410.

I mistook the .410 sculpting for a scratch. I took another look and can see it now. I guess I should know better.

The collection is long gone now . Then I got the bug to buy a few shotguns . Started with a few Model 42s... and then I had a chance to buy a well documented
1932 VH 410.... now Im hooked ....
Im looking for advice from fellow collectors on what I should be looking for.
Im not a shooter but that might change if I find another Britney :)
Im thinking a 28g and a 20g to start and perhaps a hammer gun ...
Lots to learn but Im on my way with a few Parker books..

Got lucky and found a VH 28g that is pretty close to the 410...

Ne to me 28g
