Yes but, King never used the leaf scroll work on their braces and ferrules as far as I know. The dimensions are also very similar to my Henry Distin BBb from 1893. I still suspect that it is a Higham. I know that Higham made stencil horns for Lyon & Healy that had the same type of braces and ferrules. It could also be an early Distin from when Henry Distin was in New York with Busch or Slater.
