Best Answer

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.

What is the value of a T Barker Belgium Royal Damascus double barrel with a silver medallion on the stock and silver dog on the metal?

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.

How do you find the value of a double barrel sxs 12 ga WLMoore co Belgium Royal Damascus shotgun?

Wiliam Moore was an English gunmaker, 1854-1872. Foreign copyrights weren't too well enforced in those days, so Henri Pieper of Liege, Belgium, 1877-1898, borrowed his name for inexpensive shotguns made for the American market. Value is about $150-$250, depending on how well it looks over the mantle. Damascus barrels over 100 years old shouldn't be fired unless they have been approved by a competent gunsmith, and then only with the black powder equivalent loads they were designed for.


What is the age and manufacturer of a double barrel 12 gauge shotgun with external hammers damascus barrels and Royal stamped on the barrel and United Arms Factories Liege stamped beside the hammers?

There is a long list of shotguns that are marked Royal, but I cannot find the United Arms part of your marking in my lists. All that I do find are attributed to Anciens Etablissments Pieper in Leige, Belgium, so I would bet on that being the source of yours, too. Since this version of the company name was first used in 1905 and the export of civilian firearms from Belgium ended when the Germans invaded in 1914, that would make your gun right around 100 years old.
