    Default Revolver Backstrap Engraving

    Hello,
    I am posting a photo of an engraved name on the backstrap of a Civil War period revolver. Is there any way to determine who may have engraved this name .....or if this style of engraving was used in a certain part of the country? Any suggestions/comments are appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    It looks like the type of engraving that was common in the late 1800's, but I am no expert on the history of engraving. I do think that the chances of finding out who did it without a signature are very small.
