Anywhere you can find one for sale. But don't pay much over a hundred bucks unless you buy it from the black prince himself.
Inexpensive; made @ turn of the century, 40-100 USD or so
Made by Crescent, probably around the turn of the century or a little later. Value seldom exceeds 150 USD if in pristine condition.
Not very precisely. Bridge Gun Co was a trade name distributed by Shapleigh Hardware of St Louis. Single shots marked "Black Prince Bridge Gun Co" were made by Crescent Fire Arms (1893-1930), J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co (1886-1915), and Harrington & Richardson Arms Co (1872-1985). Double barrel guns with outside hammers marked "Bridge Gun Co. Black Prince Armory Steel Belgium" were made by Anciens Etablissment Pieper in Leige, Belgium (1905-1957), and hammerless doubles marked Bridge Black Prince were made by Crescent Fire Arms and J. Stevens Arms (1920-c.1948). If you can find that your gun was made by Stevens, the Stevens historian may be able to find an approximate date of manufacture.
my grandfather died in the mid fifies i am now 53 years old and possess the 12 gauge single barrel that was once his. it is so old that the rust is almost impossible to get off. i figure the gun must be at least 80 years old!
Black Bridge was created in 2007.
