From the 1880s to World War 1 millions of utility shotguns with hundreds of store names were imported to the US from Belgium and millions more were made in the US. Fine Damascus Steel suggests Belgian origin in this case. If you examine the bottom of the barrels you will probably find an oval around 'ELG*' which is a Belgian proof mark. A crown over this mark will indicate manufacture after 1893. While many of these store brands have been linked to a manufacturer (in some cases multiple manufacturers), Macey Co is not in my list.
With the serial number that you provided,your Ithaca double barrel shotgun with the damascus barrels was produced in the year 1900.
it is all swirly
A Damascus twist steel double barrel shotgun is an antique shotgun made by layering iron and steel and welding them together. This kind of shotgun is worth approximately $3,000 depending on the condition of the weapon.
I need the answer
Without knowing the maker or the markings on the barrel/breech, you can't find out anything. Even then, there may be little to no information.
I posted a link in the related links section that may be of some help.
Depends if its damascus steel or not.
Depending on who made it and when, it could be from 50 to multiple thousands of USD
The value of an old double barrel shotgun Damascus Bonehill Special BB London would actually be dependent upon a number of factors. Some of these factors would include the age exactly and the condition of the shotgun.
I would need more information on the gun but can come within a year or two. If you email me I can discuss the gun and then post info about your shotgun. firstname.lastname@example.org Best, John Mann
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
It is a 10 gauge if it has a damascus barrel and it in mint condition can be worth up to 2000 bucks
Have it examined by a competent gunsmith
The value of a London Fine Damascus 14 gauge double barrel shotgun marked JT Sang Ford depend on its condition. This gun in excellent condition is valued between 225.00 and 320.00 as of 2014.
Damascus steel is made by folding a mild steel together with a high-carbon steel to make it stronger, and gives it a pretty pattern. Problem with Damascus barrels is that, while they work fine with low pressure black powder loads, modern smokeless shotshells are likely to cause the barrel to rupture, which is bad. If a shotgun has a Damascus barrel, it's very old and probably just a wall-hanger.
We cant find one for you here. Browning Arms Co never made a shotgun with damascus barrels as far as we know. Its possible that a gun was made with those barrels built on one of Brownings patents.
I just bought a H.S. Brown Damascus double barrel in 10ga. Dated 1883 in very good condition for $400.
