London,” and “Treble Wedge Fast.” Both lockplates have the name J.P. Clabrough & Bros. The gun is probably a Calbrough mid-grade, but it is beautifully decorated on both the metal and the wood. The gun is extensively engraved. The lockplates are literally covered with fine scroll engraving, as are all the screws. The barrels are a beautiful Damascus pattern. The stock is very finely checkered, and has a carved dividing line down the wrist, and shell carving at the base of the pistol grip. There is a shield shaped escutcheon plate on the underside of the butt. The forend is extensively checkered, and has additional engraved steel fitting at the tip. Dimensions: 48.625 inches long overall. The barrels are 32 inches long. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.

Very good to excellent. The gun is grey overall, but there is no corrosion at all.
