Excited to get a really nice one in not standard 30-06. I got 2 rifles that used to belong to Frank G. Baldwin. Still looking into who he was but very good taste in firearms it seems. The inletting really jumps out at me.

Lovely gun! What's that hanging down from the left side of the action in picture 7? Part of the scope mount?

That is some fine inletting, and the engraving is special too. Whose work is this?

Thanks for showing it 375. There may(?) be a little disconnect between the floorplate and the trigger guard engraving, but that floorplate looks to have some very nice engraving. Thanks also for showing the inletting, and it looks to be a nicely proportioned and executed stock. Congrats.

This might help lead somewhere...seems the right kind of man, had a patent on a "rolling military kitchen" among other things.

I considered that guy, as well as this frank https://www.newspapers.com/clip/40482803/rocky_mount_telegram/ who's family, ran a chain of department stores.

Still nothing concrete and its a pretty common name I am finding.

Are there European proof marks on the rifle?
