Default Rare Parker Collectable?

Does anyone own one of these or have seen one of these before? This is the first one I have ever come across.

I have collected those Parker tobacco boxes for a long time, but I haven't added that particular example to my collection. Very nice.

I have not seen too many round ones. Just the oval ones.

Mike,
These collectibles are found in similar places just like the guns we collect. They are found where you find them. Estate sales, auctions (online and in person), antique shops, flea markets, and even yard sales. Success is usually based on persistence and timing. It is just another form of hunting but is usually much cheaper than looking for the next shotgun to fit in the collection.

I can't imagine what a Parker bear sells for these days. Has anyone seen one on ebay lately?
