    Parker Bros. DHE Grade Double Barrel 12 Gauge Shotgun, #98659 Matching. 30" Damascus barrels, ejectors. Barrels retain 80% of the original damascene finish. The finish has clearly been purposefully removed for approximately 3" at the breech. Barrels also exhibit several small dents, and one fairly significant one on the left side 6" from the muzzle. There is also one pin hole at the midpoint on the left side. Marked on the rib, Parker Bros Makers, Meriden, Conn. Special Steel. Marked on the inside of the frame with both 1883 and 1887 patent dates and on the forestock release with 1878 patent date. Frame, locks etc. with classic D quality engraving including game scenes. Trigger guard with 100% brilliant blue with gold inlaid script letters J C S. Balance of the metal smooth and clean. Beautiful piece of wood. Buttstock with a period Pachmayr Old English recoil pad. Hard rubber Parker Bros. pistol grip cap. The checkering on both the pistol grip and forestock has possibly been "freshened," but expertly done. A nice early D grade Parker worthy of full restoration.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
