This page is divided into three sections.  The first section contains Winchester catalogs for the Model 21 which have engraving plates, The second section consists of photographs of documented factory engraved guns (if you'd like to share photographs of your gun I'd be glad to add them to the page, send me an e-mail). The third section consists of 'shop' catalogs and price lists that included engraving plates.
