MARK MASTER SYMBOLISM
Having learned of the fitters marks on Winchesters. Now it can be said that the person who blued the internal parts of the Teddy Roosevelt Rifle was in no question an Ulrich. Im going to do a review of the hi-resolution images and come to a conclusion of which Ulrich was a Mark Master Mason. The horse design is Hermans, but Conrad could have also don the horse. There is alot going on with small symbolism in the shading and on the buffalo’s hoof, upper one! Having spoke to the Cody Museum! The 4 by the lever is a mark of the fittewr who put the gun together. Except that I now have three “4” marks that are definitly Masonic ! I have to conclude that the symbolism is to the 4th Degree! Maybe it was done in a manner to inspire the President to advance his learning with Masonry! Historians all know Roosevelt was sick after his South America expedition and shortly over the years he had past. Factually, Roosevelt was a Blue Lodge Master Mason and here we see the Ulrich’s presenting higher degree symbolism!
Over the last week I tried to find any horses done by the Ulrich’s and so far this is the only horse with the crossed hoofs that make a perfect number 4!
UPDATE:THERE IS MORE TO WHAT WE ARE SEEING HERE & MAJOR ADDITIONAL DISCOVERIES HAVE JUST BEEN MADE ON THIS TOPIC OF THE #4 THAT I WILL POST IN THE NEAR FUTURE!
WHEN YOU THINK THERE IS ONE THERE IS MORE!
