Is there more information you require from my side, please advise, thanks.

Dear Russel,

Thank you for your patience. My last message was probably not sent. I excuse for the delay. I need sharper images of the hallmarks and all stamps or engraving you can see on the metal parts of this shotgun. Thank you very much for your help.

With kind regards,

See attached 3 more photos. All so included markings on top in between both barrels is markings H.J ROBINSON BIRM
Not sure if it is H.d or H.J
On the bottom of each barrel is a stamp W.J
Also on bottom of each barrel is stamped 13
A stamp with a triangle with a 12 and O or C pictures show this, hope this helps

Dear Russel,

At the moment I can't find the hallmarks. I check them in a library at Thursday. I ask for some patience and ask for your apologies for the delay with the apprisal.

With kind regards,

Dear Russel,

Sadly regarding technical problems, the images and messages were not displayed. I apologize for the delay in the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be a Victorian period double-barrel shotgun made by the weaponsmith Robinson in Birmingham. This rifle has Damascus barrels and is hallmarked with addition proof hallmarks that were used in Birmingham between the years 1887 to 1904.
Rifles of this gunsmith were not recently offered and sold on the international pr British auction market.
This piece is in medium condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 200 to 400 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,
