Arnold Griebel was one of, if not the finest engraver of the late 40's, 50's, and 60's. His work is considered by experts, superior to that of the Winchester factory engravers of his time. The left side is engraved in mountain lake and waterfowl scenes, featuring a gold Mallard, and a gold Eagle flying with a large fish in talons. Left side of receiver is engraved with a mountain meadow and Chukar. Also on left side is a farm pasture with Bobwhite Quail. Please see photos for engraving. They tell the story much better than words.......
