There is a crack and separation on the barrel end, as well. Franco’s number “31” is inscribed on both the knob and barrel end.

Chuck Kress: 1950-1959 Hillerich & Bradsby (35.4-oz/35”) “S2” block-letter (last name only) model. The white ash weapon shows heavy use with grain swelling/checking about the barrel, as well as a handle crack whose length has been obscured by a layer of athletic tape.
