Hello,

Through inheritence I have two long guns. One of them is a Harrington and Richardson single barrel long gun. The barrel length is 30", without the stock. Serial number: 146123. Rusted a bit, but could be easily cleaned. Any idea on potential value?

The second gun is a W. Parker double barrel long gun. No serial number or other identifiers on it without taking it apart. The barrel length is 32", without stock. This gun has some structural issues, but could be cleaned despite those issues. Any idea on potential value?

Thank you for anyone that can help.

Jim

Removing the barrel will probably show Birmingham proof marks on the doublebarrel. It is an inexpensive knockoff off of a William Parker shotgun--a fine London gunmaker. This practice of using a version of a fine gunmaker's name was a common practice in the mid to late 1800s. I have a W. Richards that was meant to imply Wesley Richards. Yours is in rough shape, probably worth $80 or so as a wallhanger. The H&R also appears rough, I'd value it about the same.
