I've seen it before, Burgess.  I don't think saying it's a bit "over the top" would be wrong even though the engraving itself does have some quality to it and that includes the chrome plating.  From my personal perspective this HSc has lost all its collector value but then I'm a purist!

Alan,

I agree with your assessment as far a collector value. I would think it has some value as the engraving is well done. The grips are what puts it over the top for me. I was not sure if it was in the white or plated. At least an interesting conversation piece. Too bad the engraver did not start with a less collectable base.

Yup put different grips on it and it would look better. I like the engraving and think it's neat/different.

I must be the odd one. I like the grips better than the pistol engraving.  I am biased.  I am a wood carver in training.
