Parker introduced their C-grade guns in 1875. They were never very popular, and the company built fewer than 1,900 C-grades in all (1,673 were hammerless modles, or CHs). Very few of these CHs were .410s – fewer than a dozen, I bet.
According to the book American & British .410 Shotguns, the late Bill Jaqua thought Parker .410 CHE No. 241429 (28″ bbls, single trigger, beavertail forend, capped pistol grip, vent rib) was most likely “…the finest Parker .410 shotgun know to exist…” Judging pics of #241429 in that book, this gun is crisper and more original.
