Unmarked Continental percussion double shotgun. Not maker marked, barrel rib is inlaid "CANONS A RUBANS", meaning "ribbon barrels" or twist steel. 33-1/4" barrels of about 0.69" bores. Metal parts have a medium gray patina overall with attractive engraving. Hammers are old mismatches. Has a couple sizable dings in the bottom of the left barrel near the ramrod pipe, as pictured. Stock is nicely checkered and carved with a wild boar, shows average wear and use overall, shows numerous light to moderate handling marks and worn scratches, has some small chips in the forearm edges and left lock mortise. Ramrod and forearm tip insert are replacements. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
