    View attachment 49335 This gun is very old I cant find exact price. The antique roadshow appraised this gun at $2000 they also said the maker was Goetz? What is this gun worth and where beside here would you sell this antique gun. Is there a market? Thanks for all your input.

    Most of the value depends on the condition, caliber and the maker. What kind of shape is the bluing/metal,stock,bores, does everything mechanical function as it should are there any parts missing? Has anything been refinished/modified? Find out the caliber of the unknown bore and the maker are there any names or hallmarks or the rifle? If the chamber of the rifle barrel is for a different caliber then what most of those old cape guns are it may be worth a bit more. If the appraisal was correct at $2000 I would think realistically if you sold it on here it shold be in the $1200-1500 range, an auction but that could lead to disappointment, Guns International/Gunbroker or cabelas. Be prepared to pay some commision rate$ unless you sell it yourself.

    Your firearm is called a hammer cape gun, made by H. Gotz & Co Berlin. 16 gauge in one barrel and probably 43 Mauser in the rifle barrel.

    Another example can be seen here:
