    I have a chance to purchase it but never seen one like it. Some of it looks like engraving other like some kind of etching. It's a 1950 for 650.00 is it worth it?

    Any good condition pre-64 is worth $500 as a base price. Once you get into rifles from the early 50's and 40's era, the price can go up to $550-600. So $650 is in no way out of line for a rifle with some great looking work like that. She's a beaut.

    It looks like a rifle that suffered from some heavy rusting & was rescued by a skilled craftsman. Check the function and the bore.

    Looks like one of those project guns from an engraving school.

    THIS. Denis recognizes it, as do I. Acid etched, and fairly nice. I would give $650 for it, but I would want to see a bit more of it, plus bore condition, etc.

    Have a couple swords here with etched blades, it's quite obvious when you know the difference in processes & appearance. :)
    Doesn't hurt the gun any, but doesn't put it into the same value level it'd rise to if that were engraving.
    What you pay for it is up to you. :)
