Default engraving patterns

A friend of mine has a bunch of drawings / templates of all the S&W engravings , he got them from S&W some 20 years ago when he was there
along with some other unique things
they are very detailed and show the entire hand gun layouts

question is are these worth anything ?

I thought about putting them in a frame kinda neat when you look at them

thanks for any help

Hello M1tankgod,
It would be nice to see pictures. Should you decide to sell, I would be interested. I think they would look good framed and on my wall too.

If they identify the engraver ( Paul Piquette, etc. ) and the serial number of the gun, and are the design used to engrave the gun, they would be valuable to who ever now owns the gun, or to the S&W archives if the gun was an exhibition piece or presentation gun. If you answer is "Yes" to the above, contact Roy Jinks for further advice, etc. Ed #15
