    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I'm not sure if someone knows more about this.
    I can't find a lot of info on the shotgun.
    R S Mortimer on both side plates
    On top of the barrel it says "Fine London Improved Twist"
    It appears to be a Damascus twist
    It is definitely old and I would say in poor shape, but some people tell me that old gun conditions are sometimes judged differently.
    The stock is cracked and there is a clamp on it. I can tell the clamp is at least 50+ years old.
    Wasn't sure if someone sees any value here. I was thinking of hanging it on the wall or something.

    I might be able to tell you something if I had a better look at the proof marks.
