With every firearm that I am handed, I perform meticulous research to uncover every possible detail about it. Through my utilization of tax records, newspapers, books, and much more, I am able to tell my clients the story behind their firearm. Most gun collectors want to know more about the treasures they’ve collected, and there are many books and factory historical lettering services available. These resources often leave gaps that my expertise can help fill, especially for individual guns with unique provenances. Many collectors want to learn more about the individual or company or distributor to which a particular gun was attributed, and my 30 years of experience as a genealogist can help synthesize a cohesive narrative from the most obscure sources. Research can also involve a firearm whose make or model is not obvious, and my extensive library (with some books dating back to the 1700’s) helps me identify the most obscure weapons. My letters are individually written (I never write form letters) and printed on archival quality cotton rag paper, and embossed with my seal.
