    Jarhead,
    Welcome to the forum. Your sXs shotgun may be worth anywhere from $25 for a parts gun to over a grand. Value depends upon condition, origin (who, where and when it was actually made) and some other factors.
    Post some in focus pics if possible, including the bottoms of the barrels and the watertable showing any markings, sides of receiver/frame and anything stamped on the barrels. If you can't post pics - describe what you see in the above places, then describe the condition of the metal and furniture (0% finish to 100%)- stock: not broken, checkered, no scratches, original butt plate, etc.

    Remove the barrels and tell us what marks are hidden under the breech end.
    If there's an ELG in an oval with crown, it was made in Belgium for export sometime after 1892.

    We need pictures of the gun and also of the marks on the bottom of the barrel and on the watertable (the flat part of the frame where the barrels sit).

    There were gunmakers named J. Cooper in both England and the U.S.
