Default Re: Antique engraving question

While pantograph engravers were around back then, they were VERY rare. Hand engravers were very common and would have been much more likely to have been used to engrave a presentation firearm. The font appears to be a standard New Hermes pantograph font. New Hermes machines were not around back then.
