W. W. Greener was a high grade English gunmaker in the 1800's. Doc Holiday was carrying one of his doubles at the OK Corral. Belgian manufacturers would put similar, sometimes identical, names on utility grade shotguns for import to the US. There's no history or documentation on many of these, but Joe Vorisek has documented 'A Greener' as a product of Henri Pieper, Leige, Belgium.

I have a circa 1874 W.W. Greener double barrel shotgun. It was made in Birmingham England. It has double hammers with nice engraving. Greener shotguns are still produced today but in limited numbers.

No such thing as a 22 Shotgun.

Made in Belgium by Simonis, Janssen, Dumoulin & Co. c. 1884-1905

Comparison to a known original and experience.

Impossible to value with only the serial number and no other information.

If we are talking about a Browning auto-5 shotgun in 16 gauge?Then the serial number that you provided indicates that your shotgun was made in the year 1950.

The Greener Mk III Police Gun was a single shot Martini action shotgun, made in a unique guage- a tapered 14 g, with grooves in the head of the shotshell for pins in the action to fit into. These are somewhat scarce, and have frequently been rebarreled to 12 g. Value will depend on condition and originality, but seem to average $400-$500. There is also a Greener GRADE 3, side by side shotgun, and value of these is MUCH higher. As with ANY gun, value is driven by condition and originality.

Please provide more information. What type of shotgun and what guage? ie Automatic, over/under etc.. please answer--tell me age, model and value of a browing over& under made in belgium serial # 148695 gun is 12 ga. and has rounded knob type pistol grip

by the serial number on the bottom of the receiver
