Thanks for the pics, Ernie. The upper one was discussed here in 2015, something about an auction, The museum may not have had it very long. It appears to be something of a put-together. Non-matching finishes, and the stock is definitely a problem; looks like someone tried to reshape the comb of a later stock, or, added the wrong butt-plate to an early one, or? The ring bar is the latter thick one, though the ring may be early. Issues, issues. Can't say anything about the dug one, too bad it cannot talk.

Where in MO are you, now?
