A true collector's piece, pictures are of actual shotgun you will be receiving. Buy it now!! Parker Brothers Grade 2 production started about 1875, before the grading system was adopted and it sold for $80 (a 80 Dollar grade). As Parker introduced the named grades they named Grade 2 guns E, F, G, H, EH and GH. The GH and EH describes Grade 2 hammerless Parkers. It was a popular gun for the owner that wanted a gun with more adornment that the average gun and was willing to pay about $20 more for a gun that looked better and was well balanced. The Grade 2 had a higher quality of American walnut which has some figure. This Grade 2 gun has Damascus Steel barrels. They were significantly better engraved than the lower grade guns. Quail, ducks, snipe and woodcock are common figures in the engraving of the frame sides and bottom; the forend latch and screw heads are also engraved. The checkering was deeper and finer than lower grade Parkers. After about 1880, the hard rubber dogs head butt plate and a white metal shied behind the top tang became standard on the Grade 2. Because of the added embellishments, it was very popular with Parker customers. This particular model has 30" barrels, walnut stock and case colored receiver. Most of original case color has worn away from normal use, the metal surfaces now take on a plum colored hue. Stock and forend have surfaces scratches and marks from use but no cracks. Very minor signs of surface rust, bore on both barrels is very bright however signs of past surface rust are evident. Only major mark on this shotgun is a small ding on the left barrel (shown in pictures). Pictures represent actual condition of firearm. Shipping to lower 48 only, Shipping $30.00 Can be shipped in a hard case for additional charge.
