This marking appears (on guns I've seen) on Belgian hammer shotguns that were imported by the thousands from c.1880 through c.1910. These were sold by the various mail-order catalog stores throughout the midwest. Look for the ELG proofmark on the underside of the barrels. Value is typically $200 or less. It is suitable ONLY for a mantel decoration - please do not attempt to shoot it.
