Greetings, my Dad just purchased a 1927 Model 12 Pigeon Grade in really good condition. The issue is that instead of the Black Diamond inlay on the wrist, it has a White or Ivory diamond exactly where the Black one is supposed to be.
I have Googled and looked in my Ref books, but can't find anything that describes a White Diamond. My Ned Schwing Pocket Guide to Winchesters says the Pigeon Grade "was a special order gun and will be seen in many variations."
Anyone heard of the White Diamond before? Thanks!
