I have one too and have no idea. Mine has outside hammers and a patient date of 1914
Bail38@aol.com I am asking anyone if they can tell me the value of my H.S.B. company double barreled shotgun with a brown finish and has a rooster with exposed hammers and has a rooster accompanied with H.S. and B company chicargo?
When was it made and how is it worth - American Gun Co., New York - Double barrel exposed, 12 guage exposed hammers and 31 3/4" barrels. Serial Number 362989?
If you have an American Gun Company, New York then the gun is not stainless steel. It was made by Crescent Firearms Co. of Norwich, Conn and distributed by the H&D Folsom Co. They were produced with damascus barrels as well as fluid steel (solid) barrels of various lengths and chokes, with and without external hammers.
50-100 or so
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. firstname.lastname@example.org
it is worthless
94 years old, +/- 20. If twist steel barrels and side hammers, more likely (but not absolutely) prior to WWI. If fluid steel and a boxlock (back hammers or hammerless) ALMOST certainly after c. 1905.
If your shotgun has Damascus barrels,then by all means do not fire modern smokeless ammo through your shotgun.I would have your shotgun looked at by a qualified gunsmith before attempting to fire any ammo through a shotgun of this age.

Unlikely. Try e-gunparts.com
Depending on condition, somewhere between $150 and $250 if it is in safe working condition. If it's an older gun with large outside hammers, it's worth about the same, but as a mantle decoration, not as a useable firearm.
Can anyone advise me. I currently restoring a black powder 12 bore shotgun one of the the hammers is missing. The gun is circa 1860 Naylor & son Sheffield. Any advice would be welcome. many thanks. Dan.
manufacturing turned toward internal hammers about 1870 just about the same time the transition from twist to fluid steel barrels appeared. keep in mind that side hammers still appeared on center fire shotguns using brass cased shotgun shells that first appeared about 1860. if it is a percussion cap shotgun its probably pre 1860.
No published sn data.
$700-$3500 depending on condition.
1905 it was invented by roger Arnold an it was fired by there pressure of the chambers
