Please click the image for a larger version
J.Manton, as marked on locks, double barrel damascus shotgun. Also marked "LAMINATED STEEL" on barrel rib. Serial number 12936. Possibly 12 gauge, barrels 30" long, with a small ding about 5" back from the muzzle on the right side. Metal parts have a smooth attractive medium patina overall with damascus finish on barrels. Stock has a very attractive striped grain and fine checkering, shows smooth wear and some minor edge nicks on the forearm. Forearm tip insert may be an old replacement. Fancy hard rubber buttplate has a scene of a hunter and dog afield, and aside from a couple "flea bites" is in good condition. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
