Default Not a Parker

I was reviewing some pictures I'd saved of early Ansley H. Fox doubles because a member had posted about serial number 15 over on the AHFCA site. I noticed what looks to me like the initials DTO on a fence rail in the game scene on the bottom of serial number 121, the gun made for director and Secretary of the A.H. Fox Gun Co., Frank J. Barthmaier.

Anyone know of an engraver from the 1905 time frame with those initials? Am I imagining things?

The gun was sold in the October 2011 Julia's auction. Catalog text doesn't mention the initials.

Who would DTO have been? Obviously the engraver, but what was his name?

"I'm a Setter man.
Not because I think they're better than the other breeds,
but because I'm a romantic - stuck on tradition - and to me,
a Setter just "belongs" in the grouse picture."

George King, "That's Ruff", 2010 - a timeless classic.
