I have a shotgun with no identification name or number on it, just some engraving.
Does anyone know what I have here or where to look to find out.
It is a full sized gun just tried to get a closeup.

Look carefully on the sides, My Father has one that looks almost identical, and his says PARKER.......Made in New York with a date of 1890 something, If it has a twist barrel, Damuscus barrel its not safe to shoot with modern ammo, If not, then its good to go...He shoots critters with his with light game loads......

I've got an attic full of these. Usually, when the company wasn't proud enough to put their name on it, there was a reason.
You can also remove the forend and slide off the barrel and look on the receiver. You might find some name marking, but I doubt it.
There are millions of these in basements all over the country. Not much value, but looks good above the fireplace.

Looks like Spanish engraving, but that's wild conjecture.

If it said Parker, you'd be very happy. They can have real value. There are copies of Parker, like Barker, (no kidding) so don't be fooled.

I gave a better look and still no manufacturers name but I did find a 4 digit serial number on the receiver side. Here is the whole gun, maybe someone will recognize it. Off to Google to see what I can find.

Interesting.
The barrel and stock seem to be contradictory regarding age to me.
I am no expert but i'm wondering if it's European and not as old as I first may have thought.
Keep us posted if you get better info
