Bannerman-Spencer Model 1890 side-action damascus shotgun. Marked on top of barrel SPENCER RPTG.SHOT GUN PAT.APL.1882" and on side of frame "F.BANNERMAN.MNFR.NEW.YORK.U.S.A./MODEL 1890". 12 gauge, 30" barrel. Serial number 9707. Barrel has fine original damascus twist finish, frame shows some original blue mixing with medium patina, other parts with light to medium patina. Magazine tube is resoldered to the bottom of the barrel. Buttstock is good, showing average wear and use with handling marks, a couple small age checks, and a couple small slivers by the upper frame tang, but sound, honestly worn wood overall. Wooden hand slide shows a crack and is neatly taped with very old and hard tape, which we have left alone, as it is well worn and blends in. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
