This gun was manufactured by Anciens Etablissments Pieper, Leige, Belgium, c. 1905-1914. It should not be fired unless it is checked and approved by a competent gunsmith, so it's primary value will be as a mantle decoration - $150-$250. Value will depend on how good it looks over the fireplace. Large side hammers seem to add a bit to the decorator value of an old double, so maybe as high as $250 if you catch a buyer in a good mood. Old damascus barreled guns should not be fired unless a really-really good gunsmith has given it his approval and determined the correct ammunition (which you will NOT find at Walmart or any chain porting goods store).

Basically impossible to value with just themodel provided. Finish? Condition? Box? Papers? Length of barrel(s)?

Your browning light-12,auto-5 shotgun which was produced in 1975 is selling for between 340 dollars for a shotgun with 60% original finish,up to 650 dollars for a fine example with 95% of the original finish remaining.If your shotgun has a vent rib barrel the value runs between 415-900 dollars.This is based on a shotgun made by FN in belgium.
