Prize Quality Belgian laminated steel double barrel cartridge shotgun. Serial number 27278. 1883 patent marked on lock. 27-1/4" barrels, 12 gauge. Left barrel has an old, smooth solder mark 11" back from the muzzle that would likely preclude any consideration of firing this antique. Metal parts have attractive engraving on light gray surfaces with strong brown twist finish on barrels. Nicely checkered stocks show average wear and use overall, has a worn chip in the toe of the butt. Forearm tip insert is replaced, and original hard rubber buttplate has numerous small chips and a couple cracks. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
