Best left to a gun smith.
Marlin's first shotgun was a pump action, made in 1898. Marlin never made a double barrel shotgun in their entire history. However, Marlin did own the LC Smith shotgun company after it went bankrupt in 1945. That made them technically a "Marlin" product. If your gun is a 1800's double barrel, it is not a Marlin. Marlin did make the Model 90 over/under, but it was not in the 1800's. Please list ALL markings on the shotgun so we can properly identify it.
It will be marked on the barrel

I have been looking for the same answer I found one with a broken stock in my grandfathers attick, did you ever figure it out?
A double barrelled surname is created by inserting a hyphen between two names e.g. Martin and Smith becomes Martin-Smith.
To figure out the actual value of a LC Smith shotgun (Elsie) you need to gather as much information about the gun your either selling or looking to buy. Aside from the different gauges you have to consider barrel length, single or double trigger, grade and so on. LC Smith shotguns were originally built by LC Smith but later sold to Hunter Arms and finally Marlin. Gather all the above informaiton you can about your gun and start searching the internet action sites like "Gunsamerica", Gunbroker, GunsAmerica and so on. Look at some of the ones on there and compair them to yours and that should put you pretty darn close.
