T. Barker was a brand name used by Sears on inexpensive imported shotguns circa 1900. If it is really mint (unfired, practically untouched since it was manufactured), a T. Barker double barrel shotgun might bring over $200. Some were manufactured by Crescent Arms, Meriden, CT, and some were imported from Belgium. Laminated steel refers to the method of manufacturing the barrels by hammer-welding strips or wires of steel around a mandrel. The Belgian part does not necessarily mean it was manufactured in Belgium, only by the Belgian method. DO NOT SHOOT THIS GUN WITH MODERN AMMUNITION. The laminated barrels would have been proof-tested for black powder, and after 100 years of use and/or abuse, they may no longer be safe even with the originally intended loads. Here's an article about these old guns: http://www.briley.com/grampa.html General value is around $125-$150 as a mantle decoration. depends on which company made it and what condition it in.I saw a T. Barker go for 450.00 dollars last week at a gun show

This is a method used to make shotgun barrels in the 1800's and early 1900's. Wires or thin steel strips were wrapped around a mandrel and hammer-welded. Belgian laminated would be one of the least expensive types of laminated barrels.

The value of a WM Moore Co London laminated steel double shotgun depends on its condition. This gun in excellent condition is valued between 75.00 and 125.00 as of 2014.

Whatever a yuppie will pay for a mantle decoration. Probably $150-$200. Laminated barrels are not considered safe for use with modern ammunition.

the gun has two hammers and on the barrels is stated laminated steel

I have an identical shotgun. Same markings, date, laminated barrel, etc. but no gold emblem. I'm also interested in the value. Mine has a cracked stock.

about 150-200 if it has a nice petina and no rust, decent furniture, down to 35-50 as a wall hanger or lamp.

The gun was made c.1900, and the value is fairly low especially with laminated barrels. Under $200, certainly. Please do not attempt to fire it.

The most common types are of knife blades are ceramic, laminated steel, stanless steel and carbon steel. All have pros and cons, but laminated steel would likely be considered the "best" as it is made by layering several different types of metals obtain the best qualities from each.

I have the same. It reads Daminated Steel on the rib. It has Belgian makers marks with the gunsmith mark being a crown over JJ. Very little info available but it was a play on Damascus and Laminated. Probably ill advised to fire it.

The way I understand it is the process of folding the steel or pattern welding causes a laminated type steal blade that is more flexible than a solid blade of the same steel. When it is folded it is not molten together but bonded. If it was molten together it would not have the characteristics of a laminated blade but a solid piece as if smelted. Think of a laminated piece of wood against a solid piece and you can understand the difference in flexibility and overall strength. Like that of a laminated bow. The laminated blade would flex more and be less likely to break, strength is typical of the hardness of the steel as well. So in a way it would be stronger because of flexibility but you have to take into consideration the hardness. I would research into differential hardening techniques used by sword craftsman to learn more. Hope this helps. Jerrud

they were made out of steel in 1885 They were all made with steel barrels. The earliest, by Lefever & Barber Co in 1874-75 were damascus or laminated steel. Fluid steel barrels would have been introduced about 1900.
