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.
Damascus steel is made by folding a mild steel together with a high-carbon steel to make it stronger, and gives it a pretty pattern. Problem with Damascus barrels is that, while they work fine with low pressure black powder loads, modern smokeless shotshells are likely to cause the barrel to rupture, which is bad. If a shotgun has a Damascus barrel, it's very old and probably just a wall-hanger.
Does it read "kec" or "ked"? The Remington web site indicates 4 grades of Remington model 1900 double barrel shotguns (http://www.remington.com/library/history/firearm_models/shotguns/model_1900.asp): Grades Offered: K - Remington steel barrelsKE - Remington steel, auto ejectorsKD - 2 stripe Damascus barrelsKED - 2 strip Damascus, auto ejectors
I can say that the marking stevens Arms and Tool company was marked on stevens made firearms from 1886-1915.This time period would include your double barrel shotgun.As to value that would dpend on your shotgun having steel barrel or Damascus twist steel barrel(BLACKPOWDER ONLY).The ovreall condition would also be important.
Damascus steel barrels can usually be recognized by visible (if the metal is bare) "twists" or striations. Do NOT fire a gun that has a Damascus steel barrel unless it has been proof tested by a qualified gunsmith. For that matter, do not fire any old firearm, Damascus steel or not, unless you are certain that the barrel can withstand the higher pressures of modern gunpowder. Safety first: take it to a qualified gunsmith if there's any doubt.
