The W.H.Hamilton 12 Guage shotgun is from the turn of the century. Look for either Damascus or Belgum Twist on the barrel to deermine the era. In good shape it may sell at auction from $200 + - all depending on the completeness and shape. Do not use with modern high velocity powders. Most sell for wall hangings for $150 in average shape.
If it is marked 'American Gun Company' on the sideplate, it would be worth $200 tops. Primarily considered as a mantle decoration and unsafe to shoot with modern ammunition. email@example.com

KD stands for damascus barrel I do not know what the Y stands for. You should not fire the gun with a damascus barrel because it is weaker and might explode with modern shells
