I am going to list for a clubmate what I think is a Leo's Special BT99. It is very much ingraved like a grade VI but does not have gold birds. Is there a special numbering system or method of telling that it is a true Leo's gun? I have seen them listed as #xx of #xxx. I will have lots of pics to post by tomorrow. Just needing info on how to varify.

Bernie,

All grades of Leo's BT's had a special number (inlaid in gold) assigned to each gun which you will find just above the release lever on the reciever. The box will say Leo's Special but you won't find "Leo's" on the gun itself.

All the Leo Grade IV Pigeons I've ever seen have gold birds....you may have a non Leos Pigeon. Pics will tell the story.

KEEP SMOKIN' EM.... Dave

PA101_guy,

Thanks a bunch. That is just the info I needed. I will be posting a gun just like yours without gilded birds (just silver birds) or the number system. I will assume it is a custom shop gun like a Leo's but not his. It is beautiful. Pics will be posted after Easter if not sooner.

Thanks again all,
Bernie

A Grade V BT-99 looks very much like a Leo's Grade VI BT-99.....only without the gold inlays. Based on your description, this might be what your friend has.
