I can't seem to read the lettering on the center rib. Any idea what it is? It is owned by a friend of mine and came from his father who died 20 years ago and has been sitting in his basement (I know, I know!!!) along with a couple of Savage 99s, a Savage 23B, an old Sterlingworth double-barrel, and a bunch of other stuff.
Thanks for any help!!
Probably Belgian. The script looks to be Dutch or possibly French. Fine piece. Hope it cleans up. 0000 steel wool will make ID a little easier.
