My heartiest thanks to all you Parker experts on this forum for the kick in the ass that forced me to better research this gun. I just got off the phone with the DelGregos, remember them? The father and Grandfather worked at Parker gun works.
They verified my gun truly is an early Skeet gun. The checkering pattern is correct, the skeet in and skeet out stamps are correct and what appears to be a non-standard forend is in fact proper for a 20's skeet gun. It was known as the BIG beaver tail forend. It is identified by the thickness at the rear by the forend iron. The later ones curved inward instead of outward like this one.
I would really appreciate it if the expert who said George Halas was an avid skeet shooter would repost it for all to see. It could well be true. Obviously you don't know.
