Valient was a trade name used by the Spear and Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on firearms they retailed. The patent date identifies yours as a product of J. Stevens Arms.

You must identify the manufacturer, model, and possibly the serial number as a start. It may get more complicated after that.hartford firs arms co. 169715

That is impossible to determine without knowing the manufacturer and model of the shotgun.

From your description, it could date to approximately 1860 or 2002. Are there any markings that might identify the manufacturer/model, etc?
