L.C. SMITH CATALOG COVERS

Catalogs are one of the primary sources for information about L.C. Smith shotguns. The design and art used on the covers provide a view of what sportsmen saw in the past and make the catalogs important and valuable to collectors. Since many are not dated, this presentation will help collectors determine the vintage of catalogs in their collections. This should help to eliminate the confusion of publication dates because some catalogs were used for several years, and up to three catalogs were printed in a single year. We believe that many of you will simply enjoy viewing the art and the cover design.
