The "Rose and Scroll" appears to be the standard for better Lee Speeds

Whether engraved by BSA or the retailer is arguable??

FYI, BSA usually did the engraving, but sometimes the gunmaker (for example, Greener) did the engraving, especially in the early years of production. There will be more on this in the Lee Speed book.
