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.

Barker go for 450.00 dollars last week at a gun show
