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).

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.
