Non engraved CHE 12 gauge
5 Attachment(s)
Thought I would post some pictures of a CHE I bought about 2 years ago. It was ordered June 1912 with Acme 28 inch ejector barrels.nice wood, and No Engraving.
The only thing engraved is Parker Bros on the sides.
Left barrel (.010) was ordered more open then right ( .040).
No mention of any gold inlays, or grip cap. ( letter states Capped pistol grip) I assume that this was done after gun was received.
The gold initials A. V. H. On the trigger plate are the initials of the buyer A. V. Hall.
A V Hall was the grandfather of the lady I purchased the gun from. He owned The Sherwood Hall company of Grand Rapids Michigan.

Unfortunately not. But itís going out to shoot some doves and pigeons a few times over the next two weeks. DH 28 sent to Legh last week. Looking forward to some cooler weather to hunt in.

Nice action photo Phil
We open on Sept 28th and can't wait although I don't get to hunt much.

Phil you sure get the good ones. My unengraved CH is still unembellished and field used. My unengraved AAH is the same way, still unembellished and with a bit of use.

Bill, does Steve still have that unengraved BH... the one with the ‘unusual’ stock and forend?


Bill Murphy 09-13-2019 08:16 PM

Yes he still has it. I have bothered him enough that I think I am first in line if he ever sells or trades it. Young as I may be, I get the idea that Steve will outlive me.

So, is there some common reason for these higher grades to have been ordered without engraving?

I'll guess that every eccentric who ordered a high-grade Parker barren of engraving did so for his own particular reason(s).... or maybe they simply had an affinity for 'nice wood.'
