The stocks have all the original finish with minor nicks. The checkering is sharp and crisp. The ramrods are original with screw-off caps which reveal a bullet worm. The locks are marked Henry Probin. The barrels are marked Henry Probin, Snow Hill. Both barrels have mandatory British  proof stamps. The locks, breeches, trigger guards and screws,  are intricately engraved. The actions are crisp. The case is an English deluxe, brass bound mahogany with a lift ring in the top.
