Dear Matt,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a single barrel shotgun. This gun was produced by Marlin Firearms in New Haven. The caliber is unknown and this gun has a cartridge based system and not a flintlock system.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 150 to 300 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With kind regards,

I don't think I agree with your appraisal. It is not a cartridge based shotgun. This gun has to be loaded through the muzzle. I added a couple of more pictures that might help.

Dear Matt,

Thank you for your email. Such technical details are sometimes hard to judge just on the base of images. Usually, you need to physical exam especially firearms because of the technical condition. Sadly this details does not change the estimate.

With kind regards,
