    It is an old rusty double barrel shotgun, probable Belgium in manufacture, value in relic condition maybe 100 dollars as a wall hanger. Are there any markings at all, pull the front wood and check

    that looks like a very old one ,neat realease some one may give a little more than a hundred, but it would be most likely always a wall hanger

    Angryisme, you have better eyes than I, I even zoomed it up to 400 and couldn't read it. but I betcha your eyes are also younger so I will take your word for it.
    Tim if you can bring out the working on the barrel it can help to date the time period it was made. Use some shark or even white-out. Better yet, first wet the area, that might bring out the letters.
    The shotgun is in very poor condition and even if we can ID it, the value will never be very high. Also original parts ( such as a right Hammer ) are almost impossible to find.

    you have 2 different pics on that link. are you asking about the rifle or the shot gun. the post above is for the rifle, probably a 32 rim fire, called a "crack shot" at one time. this is the pic from your other post.

    if you are asking about the shotgun, look for some kind of proof marks or something to go on besides the one pic.
