    Heat a pin red hot and on touch the underside of the grip. If it melts it's some sort of synthetic if it smells like hair burning it's bone or ivory.

    :) No need to use a heated pin. Jay Scott was not a custom maker,. A subsidy of Colt, they made good utilitarian grips for the mass market. They did make some nice genuine faux pearl grips.

    Used Jay Scott grips sell for $20 - $30 a set on eBay. They are good quality grips IMO.
