It does look contemporaneous with the gun.

It’s a VH Parker which typically had no engraving other than border. To me it looks totally original. Best guess I have is either the factory experimented with adding a little flavor to the gun or more likely someone in the engraving department had a little extra time and doodled on it. Very rare find! A Parker letter would be interesting to be sure it wasn’t ordered by buyer. If not, I doubt a letter will tell you much.
