I had a lettered .38 DA that was etched. The letter said it was shipped in 1889 as a nickel revolver to an Edward K. Tyron Co., Philadelphia, PA.
I have Edward K. Tryon listed as the recipient of several of the first run of .22/32 HFT's that didn't go to Bekeart in 1911. The company was established in the 1840's IIRC and was quite a going concern for over 100 years.Mike try Googling the company using the correct spelling TRYON.
