Top of barrel marked ''J. Purdey & Sons, Audley House, South Audley Street, London'', and ''Made of Sir Joseph Whitworth's Fluid Pressed Steel''. Steel front bead, double triggers, manual safety with ejectors, cocking indicators, and ovoid plaque at bottom of stock. Shotgun is engraved on lever and at breech portion of rib, as well as the forend tip in gold, with the No. 2, indicating that this is No. 2 of a two-gun set. (The whereabouts of the other shotgun are currently unknown.) Mfg'd 1911, with only 253 produced that year. Condition is excellent.

Stock and checkering have been refreshened somewhat, with small fissure emanating from rear checkered diamond approx. 2'' behind upper tang. Action remains crisp, bores are mirror bright. Length of pull to end of wood: 13-3/16''; to end of pad 14-7/8''. Stock with very minor right-hand cast-off. Drop at heel 2-1/2''; drop at comb 1-5/8''. Est.: $12,000-$18,000. (C&R) (Ernest A.
