Thanks for the replies I really appreciate the great information. I did see the reference for the skeleton steel buttplate in the list of options in Mr. Houchins' book. My newly acquired grade 4 Smith has this feature. I purchased it from Don Bullock this past weekend. He told me that one of the knowledgeable collectors in the Association (I don't recall who) had looked at it and concluded it was original. This engraving is in the same style as that on the rest of the gun. I was hoping there might be more information on this feature.
Thanks again to all of you who took time to respond.
