    What is the value of something like this it has nothing missing its in good condition checkering is still highly visible bores have minimum pitting has belgium laminated steel barrels is thought to be a U.P railroad police gun during the great depression has U.P brass shield inlaid into the bottom of the grip on the stock the gun is tight but the hammers are a little loose

    Vorisek's "Shotgun Markings" lists H. J. STERLING as a trademark of Fernand Dumoulin of Liege, one of the better Belgian makers.

    Most of the type if complete and decent looking will bring that much as a decorator.

    Any decent wall hanger will bring around $100.00 as a decoration/conversation piece.

    I'm not sure where you got the 1925 date, most Belgium outside hammers and Damascus barrels were made prior to 1911.
