Here you go, Brian. A Baker Black Beauty about like it was when it originally left the store.

My latest and greatest is a Jacob Glahn signed L. C. Smith A2 recently purchased from Daryl Hallquist.
Thank you Daryl!

The lines of the Ansley H. Fox double with just a bit of border engraving like the HE-Grade Super-Fox or the early A-Grades. Not a particular fan of the bold engraving that showed up on American doubles in the early teens. For high end ornamentation I prefer the Glahn family engraved Lefevers or the D & E quality Remington Hammerless Doubles. Really dislike those lightning bolts on the sides of the barrels of several of the companies' high-end guns.

I couldn't agree more! And not a fan of elaborate gold inlays generally.

My favorites are my graded Parkers with no engraving, a CH and a AAH. Second on my list would be very high condition V Grade and Trojan Grade guns that have never been hunting. Next on the list would be PH Twist guns that have, you guessed it, never been hunting. This doesn't mean that I don't respect my graded guns, but these less than normal collector guns are interesting too.

I'm also not a fan of gold treatment on shotguns, but I think the gold ovals on Parker B's and above is a very classy touch. I also think the same of the gold line on LCS ribs and the gold "R" and "L" on Fox single trigger guns. Normally gold bird dogs are over the top for me. But my Lefever E 8ga with the gold setter on the trigger guard is way cool and perfectly done.

All of a sudden I’ve gotten a taste for a Krieghoff K-80 in Bavarian or Danube grade . And I mean one from about 25 years ago not one of the present lazer engraved jobs .

I'm a different sort of guy, I accept that. But, that said, I've always had a soft spot for Fox B and BE grade guns. They were not made but for a few years and I always thought they were dropped because they were too nice for the price, and were unprofitable for Fox.

My 1918 BE 32" twelve gauge.
