That's noble of you but a non-member suggesting on this website that a gun is for sale is strictly against forum rules.

Some posters have erroneously indicated that a Damascus barrel gun must be grade 2 or higher. That is not true. There are Damascus guns in this serial number range that are grade 1. However, I can't read the serial number or the rib legend, so I am in the dark. I would guess that this gun is a Damascus grade 1, rare as they may be. Knowing the serial number and the rib legend may shed some light.

Further, I don't believe any (never say never) grade 2 guns were produced with roll-stamped lock plates and hammers... hammers maybe, but not lock plates. Grade 2 guns, again, had birds engraved on the lock plates and bottom of the frame. Grade 1 guns had no birds or dogs (or any other animal) engraved. I know this seems like a broad statement but it is as close to factual as my experience tells me.

Dean, 12083 was listed as a 12 ga D2 lifter and it had roll stamped locks and hammers. See pics in my photos. Jim

In the era that this gun was produced, grade two guns typically had sculpted bolsters, damascus barrels, 3 point checkering patterns and light engraving including knick-dot botders with some flourishes of scroll. The game birds on grade 2 guns came later.

I made my statement about Grade 1 Damascus guns after I thought I had read a five digit serial number starting in #4. There are Grade 1 Damascus guns in the forties, but this gun is obviously not one of them.
