Default A Little Different Set of Early Guy Hogue Grips

Wanted to add this to the thread. I just picked up these Guy Hogue beauties in a small lot. I was happy to find that they were what I thought.

They are a little different in that they only have one finger groove at the base of the grip, have a covered back-strap, do not have as pronounced a palm-swell and are narrow at the bottom, without the usual flare. They are beautifully made of Rosewood and the grips come together on the back-strap to look almost like one-piece. The usual brass screw came with the grips but it is stripped so had to use a steel one I had on hand.

I was advised by Pat Hogue of Hogue Inc. and Guy Hogue's son that they did indeed appear like his dad's work, probably being made in the mid-70's and were likely of Brazilian Rosewood.
