ALso, if extensive pebbling presents, it was done inproperly.
The ones that I've seen have all been a dull olive green/grey. And the surface was covered with very fine pebbles. It felt quite different to the touch than blue or stainless steel.
What was the reason for parkerizing anyway? Beyond the obvious applications of a non-reflective surface I mean?
