    I have what I believe to be an"'early" Walker made by S Marco in Italy. It only has the PN stamping and the crossed swords w/circled Star"...I can find NO others..can you help me date this brute..? It is factory engraved ??. The cyl. scene has lettering of W L Ormsby etc. within the border engraving that I cannot read the rest. I am perplexed on this dating and am curious as to whether S Marco did the engraving on the frame/T'guard/backstrap etc..??

    First you buy flowers, then go to her house and ask her father's permission. After that, you are on your own! :neener:

    It OUGHT to have a two letter in a square date code somewhere.
    But that might have been defarbed in cleaning up for engraving.
    I think the engraving is a bit nicer than the usual factory pattern and the gold band on the cylinder is not real common from the factory. Maybe one of those "commemorative" outfits like arctic says.
