Parry operated in Ithaca, NY from 1889-1893, according to Frank Sellers "Sold to Charles Roth in 1892 after making a few shotguns". Serial number 447. Metal parts have a light to medium mottled patina overall with attractive damascus finish on barrels, with a few minor pits scattered and a couple small dings in the barrels. Buttplate is a little undersized and appears to be an old replacement. Stocks show average wear overall with scattered minor marks and a couple small cracks in the forearm. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
