According to the chart on page 120 of "L. C. Smith Shotguns" by William Brophy, this is one of only 88 Crown Grade Single Barrel Trap shotguns ever produced. Dual white bead sights on the raised, matted vent rib, standard Crown Grade markings on the barrel, 1 1/2 inch wedges of floral scroll on both sides of the barrel, single band of engraving at the muzzle, and 2 3/4 inch chamber with automatic ejector. The casehardened boxlock action displays extensive floral scroll engraving surrounding a pair of setters on the left and a pair of pointers on the right in oval scenes. The toplever is inlaid with a gold crown along with more scrollwork. Highly figured, fancy relief carved fleur-de-lis checkered trap forend with engraved fittings including the rotary latch release and pistol grip stock with fleur-de-lis carved flats, engraved grip cap, and ventilated recoil pad. Barrel and stock measurements: bore diameter measured nine inches from the breech .731 inches; choke constriction .030 inches; minimum wall thickness .036 inches; 1 1/2 inch drop at comb; 2 1/8 inch drop at heel; 14 7/8 inch length of pull; weight 8 lbs 11 oz.
Very fine overall, retaining 97% original blue on the barrel and 75% on the trigger guard, 80% muted case colors on the action, light handling evidence, replacement grip cap, and sharp checkering on the wood. Mechanically excellent.
