Probably not, but the company did own a lot of firearms, so it is remotely possible. American Gun Co shotguns were made by Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT, and by various Belgian manufacturers and sold through H&D Folsom Sporting Goods of New York. A lot of old utility shotguns have been stamped with a fake Wells Fargo logo and sold at flea-markets as "stagecoach guns", usually with the barrels cut to about 20". Despite what you see in John Wayne movies, a real stagecoach gun would not be a short-barreled shotgun.

When did Ithaca manufacture the 12 gauge side by side hammerless gun for Wells Fargo Coach?

I don't know the answer, but I know where you can find it. Check your library for "The Ithaca Gun Company - From the Beginning" by Walter Snyder. There's a list of serial numbers that are verified as being Ithaca shotguns owned and used by Wells Fargo Company. Since thousands of cheap shotguns have had fake WF&Co marks added, about the only one's that will bring a premium from advanced collectors (of firearms or Wels Fargo memorabilia) are the ones listed there.

No. Hanover Arms was a trade name used by H&D Folsom Sporting Goods on inexpensive shotguns made by Crescent Firearms and a variety of Belgian makers. If you have a double barrel shotgun with Wells Fargo markings, someone has tried to make a silk purse from a sow's ear./QuestionI have a Wells Fargo 12 gauge made by American Gun Co of New York. It has several authentic markings on the stock. It however, has had the barrels cut off some. Has external hammers. lcjones American Gun Co is another Folsom trade name. Because all the old western movies showed the stagecoach shotgun as a short-barreled gun, all the fakers cut the barrels. In reality, stagecoach guards would use a standard length (30 or 32 inch) shotgun or a lever action rifle.
