No. What would the company that produced the finest American double barrel shotgun want with a utilitarian import?

Crown shotguns were manufactured in Belgium. I have read that some of them had Damascus steel barrels, so DO NOT fire modern shotgun ammunition in it.

Your gun was made by the Dumoulin firm in Belgium between 1885 and 1905. Value will be under $250.

A Damascus twist steel double barrel shotgun is an antique shotgun made by layering iron and steel and welding them together. This kind of shotgun is worth approximately $3,000 depending on the condition of the weapon.

Belgium is the country of origin, not a brand. Innumerable old damascus barreled shotguns were made in Belgium and imported into the US before and after the turn of the century. These were generally low cost shotguns, of no current collector value (better guns identify the manufacturer). If the Damascus pattern is pretty, and the receiver still has case colors, it may have some value as a wall hanger. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FIRE IT! Damascus steel cannot withstand the pressures of modern smokeless powder. Even black powder should not be used unless the gun is fully examined by a very competent gunsmith.

No such thing as a 22 Shotgun.

WILMONT GUN CO guns were made in Belgium from c.1880 to c.1915. Value is going to be low, with excellent examples under $400. Please do not attempt to fire the shotgun.

Most of these guns were made with compressed steel which is similar to Damascus. The enterprise shotguns were Belgium. In good usable condition this should be worth about $150.00 to 250 USD.

The value of an old double barrel shotgun Damascus Bonehill Special BB London would actually be dependent upon a number of factors. Some of these factors would include the age exactly and the condition of the shotgun.

We cant find one for you here. Browning Arms Co never made a shotgun with damascus barrels as far as we know. Its possible that a gun was made with those barrels built on one of Brownings patents.

Pieper was a Belgian gun maker, so it was most likely made in Belgium. Look for the Belgian black powder proof marks.

Depending on who made it and when, it could be from 50 to multiple thousands of USD

Royal Damascus was a mark used by Ancien Etablisment Pieper of Herstal, Belgium, c. 1890-1914. T Barker is usually dismissed as "just another Belgian clunker", but with a silver escution and engraving, yours is probably better than the average utility shotgun from the period. I have heard that T Barker was a hardware outlet in California, but have no proof of that.

F. Dumoulin & Company, Belgium, c. 1894-1930. This gun was made for the American market, so it would have been earlier than 1914 since WW1 stopped the import of firearms from Europe and after the war there were plenty of domestic manufacturers. If it says Fine Steel instead of Fine Damascus Steel, it would have been made after 1900.
