Re: Old double barrel 12g shotgun
It wasn't made in 1953, probably more like 1890 to early 1900's. A picture of the barrel marking wouldn't hurt. Someone on the forum will no doubt be able to tell you what all the proof marks mean. It is Belgian and probably not worth a great deal, but does make a cool wallhanger.
