This rather pretty 38-key Jeffries has, I find, the initials HG stamped into the left hand end only, under the wrist bar where it would never normally be seen.
I wonder if they might be the initials of the engraver? After all, if I had done the engraving, I'd have been pretty pleased with myself - wouldn't you?

It's possible, but the letters look more crudely engraved than the decorative pattern to me.

Ooooh, but that engraving is pretty.

The G appears to have been done properly. Looks like someone has modified the other letter.
