The value of your Parker and Greener, are based on the model, grade and condition of each piece. With that said, you should visit a reputable gun shop in your area and have them appraise your guns. Let them know that you are interested in an appraisal for insurance purposes and not what they would be willing to buy them for. Good luck.
To answer your question quickly,the answer is none.Parker Bros.began production of there shotguns in the year 1866.They continued production until 1934 when Remington took over production and then moved the plant to Ilion,New York in 1938.While you mave have a shotgun dated to 1840,this would not be a Parker Brothers shotgun.
Parker double barrel serial #131072 what would the grade be and date made.I can say that with the serial number provided,your Parker shotgun was made in the year 1904.As to the grade,that would be impossible to say without a detailed description of the shotgun in question.you may find that there is much info available to you thru the internet about parker shotguns that will assist you in deciding which grade of Parker shotgun you have.
Nothing as a useable firearm, but if it is a double barrel with large hammers, it could be worth up to $200 as a mantle decoration. Despite the "London" marking, it was probably made in Belgium around 1900 and the name was probably chosen to suggest a connection with the well-known and respected Parker Brothers shotguns.
W. W. Greener was a high grade English gunmaker in the 1800's. Doc Holiday was carrying one of his doubles at the OK Corral. Belgian manufacturers would put similar, sometimes identical, names on utility grade shotguns for import to the US. There's no history or documentation on many of these, but Joe Vorisek has documented 'A Greener' as a product of Henri Pieper, Leige, Belgium.
Is this a breech loader or muzzleloader? W. Greener muzzleloaders of the mid 1850s were engraved with the phrase "Indestructable by Gun Powder" They were elegant and light weight. A double in good condition should bring several thousand dollars. Out of my collection of several dozen antique guns, the W. Greener from 1856 is my favorite to shoot and hunt with. Of my collwction of shotguns that include Parkers, LC Smiths, etc., the old greener is the best ballanced/shouldering of the lot. Email me photos of your Greener. email@example.com
