Some of the work to me looks clearly to have been done after the fact such as the name on the last photo puffer provided as it doesn’t match the quality of the rest of the piece .
Could not also this explain some of the examples that have much lighter and more simple engravings
Good thought.

NOTE - a "good share" of the guns do not have a Maker's name engraved as a part of the "engraving.Often the maker put his/her "mark on the inside of the lock. But here are some that you might want to consider & COMMENT on.
