Both guns were donated in 1994 to be auctioned by the American Diabetes Foundation in 1994. The guns were donated unfinished, but with the intentions to finish and stock the guns for the winners of the auctions. The guns were subsequently stocked with the same dimensions: 14 ½" LOP, with bend of 1 ¼" x 1 ½" a ¼" of Cast On for a Left Hand shooter. 

The guns are cased individually in a lightweight canvas cases and each gun remains in 98% overall, showing a few handling marks on the stocks, but the metal and barrels remain near perfect.
