Jim mentioned Kusmit engraving above...Nick Kusmit was the famous Winchester engraver, I have seen folks asking $75,000 for his guns...notice, how Jim stated, the openness...I use the word simplicity...of the scroll and the stiffness of the dog...compare to the photos above....



That is not to say that Kusmit was not an artist in his own right, but compare the technique that Jim shows versus the well known vintage engraver.
