name that engraver

1858 Remington-Beals .36 Navy

The name Louis Nimschke keeps showing up. He engraved early Remingtons around the time this gun was made (1860). He was copied later and there's alot of fake Nimschke engravings out there but apparently when he first began he wasn't copied simply because he wasn't known.
If you look real close you can see the engraved dots.
It's possible it was Nimschke.

There's only a small group of researchers from the Remington Society of America that have been allowed access to the Remington corporate production records. They may be the folks to try to contact due to their actually having some first hand knowledge.

I posted on their forum but no one responded. There's a book by R.L. Wilson about Nimschke engravings but the book is selling for $400 - $600. I contacted the James Julia auction house in Maine - they do free appraisals. I'm just waiting to hear from them. If it wasn't Nimschke, it was the guy on the stool next to him.
