What IS It?
Hi, I work with an estate auction company and we are about to sell an old shotgun which has pretty much rust on the top of the barrell and it is hard to make out all the lettering.
Not being much of a "gun person", I have no idea what to even call it and wondered if some of you fine folks could give me some hints.
The lettering that I can make out is: *is a letter that I can't make out
"*EW **AVEN FOR* ? *FIREARMS CO ******** CONN, U.S.A."
Any hints that you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
