Stock Stamping

Post by Northup87 » Thu Jan 09, 2020 11:33 am

Hello All,
I'm in the process of doing a light restoration on a 1908 Remington Auto loader that was in very rough shape. During the stripping process and repair of the rear stock I uncovered some interesting stamping you knowledgeable fellas could have info on. On the left side I found the stamping V.V. and on the right side of the gun in the wrist section I found the stamping F.S. BANK or F.S. BA?K

Could this be an early Rail/Coach gun. I have saw doubles stamped with Wells Fargo and similar stamps.

What are your thoughts?

as often with other types of firearms, individuals and companies (especially) marked ownership of their firearms. Cool stampings, have you investigated any possible sources via google search?

First Savings Bank of Gainsville, TX was chartered in 1905. Fits the timeline of the gun, but it's a leap. I'm going to include it on the restoration.
