    Hi,
    I have a single shot 12 ga forhand and wadsworth shotgun. It is stamped patented on August 16, 1881. It also has a stamp on the barrell that says fine decarbonized steel. It has the original metal work and is in excellent condition. The original birdseye maple stock was replaced with birdseye maple. Can someone help me figure out what it may be worth?

    Welcome to TFF!

    It was made in Worcester, Massachusetts by the sons-in-law of Ethan Allen.
    1870's-1890's.
    According to research; not much collector interest ($100-$190).

    Pics would help.
