Re: Rib Gold Inlay?
It should also be noted that not all LC Smith Guns always came with a gold (or silver) inlay at the joint between the solid rib and the hollow rib. The LC Smith Pigeon Gun for example (first 10 Pigeon Guns finished in December 1893) did not come with the gold inlay as "standard" until late 1899 - early 1900.
