Henry Beckwith Pinfire 12 ga.
I have recently acquired a beautiful 12 ga Pinfire Shotgun. It is very ornately engraved with what appears to be sturgeon as hammers. There is nothing on this gun which is not engraved, all screws are even engraved. I have done quite a bit of research on this and also had an appraiser give me an opinion on it, but unfortunately did not tell me anything other than what I told him. I know it was manufactured by a 3rd generation company from Snow Hill, London, "William A Beckwith" pre-1841, then his wife and son under "Elizabeth Beckwith & Son" 1841-1862, and then 1863-68 under the son "Henry Beckwith". There are some connections to the East India Trading Company at some point. I don't know what ever happened to the company after that. The gun it exquisite, I would love to get my hands on a couple of pinfire shells to display with it.
Anyone who can help me with further information about this gun would be of help, I am really interested in an idea of value for this, as I have not seen any online anywhere.
