Looks like a GH grade ("H" denotes a hammerless gun and "G" denotes grade of gun). Hammmerless Parker grades were as follows beginning with the llowest: Trogen, V, P, G, D, C, B, A, AA, A-1 Special, and Invincible. The G grade was the highest of the lower grade Parker guns and G's are not rare (28K or so made), D and C grade guns were the middle grade offerings; and B grades and higher were considered top of the line. Those grades were the most expensive and are the most rare. Values of Parker guns depends on so many factors (gauge, barrel type, options, percent of original remaining finishes, production period, after-market modifications, etc., ect., etc; so the best advice anyone can give your boss is to have the gun appraised by an appraiser very knowledgeable in vintage double guns.
