I would say it is worth what you just paid for it.

Always a good idea to do the red part before the green part

Hi Leroy, your pictures didnt come thru, so we cant see the gun. It appears you have a GH, or GHE, if it has ejectors---a grade 2 Parker. You did list the ser#, so maybe someone will look it up and give us some more info. With that low a serial #, I would imagine the barrels are damascus, on the top rib, it will state the type of steel used. On the bottom of the barrel lug should be a number stamped-- a 1, 1 1/2, or 2--that is the frame size--the higher the number the heavier the frame.
All these factors, and of course the condition of the gun are important in determining gun value. Hopefully you can put some pictures up and we can tell you more.

Default Records for 73912

Not in Price & Fjestad. That would be within the range on page 260.

The PGCA Serial Number Database indicates that there are surviving Parker Factory records for this gun.

I am trying to find any PGCA members who might live in the Knoxville TN area.
I live in Loudon County TN, and have a 1906 vintage hammererless 12 ga that I would like information on.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. The serial number is 73912 and it is a G. and i think it is in great shape. I would send photos but i dont know how in this forum.

Thank You
