I think Ken Hurst work has increased in cost, a lot, since the 1980's. I am sure you have seen from his web site that A promising engraver I found on the FEGA web sight is Jim Wark. If you check out his web site, www.888guns.com ,you can see a picture of a 9422M he did for me this year 2008.
Jim used a Forever postage stamp as a sample to engrave the liberty bell on the other side. vintage 1852
I am planning a 9422M Trapper Jim will engrave a picture of the the first US oil well. vintage 1859.
