You know for a guy who never posts pictures of his own stuff, you could sure be more polite when you ask others to post pictures of their stuff.

None of my G&H rifles is engraved. It's not something I'm into.

The buyer and whomever helped him run the bid that high must have known something we donít but thatís NOT a Griffin and Howe built rifle.

It's obvious that Seymour Griffin did not checker that rifle, but the overall result is quite astounding. The new owner will probably discover some of the mysteries. I would still like to own it. Selling price $3900. Don't know if that included the BP.

It's been a long time since, but I do recall seeing several nearly identically engraved G&H rifles in auction catalogues attributed to Kornbrath and concluding mine must have been done by the same hand.

I have a very beautifully engraved Adolph Minar which I've never been able to attribute. If anybody has great expertise on 1930s-ish engraving, I will send him photos.

I donít doubt youíve seen similarly engraved guns attributed to Kornbrath because everyone wants to claim everything from that time period is by Kornbrath. But yours is by Swensen and thatís not a bad thing at all. Swensen was a fantastic engraver, just not as well known as Kornbrath, and much of his work is credited to others. Iím absolutely not knocking your gun, just trying to correct misinformation.

I certainly wish that there was a better reference on the subject.
