My Dad found this one is a case, in a closet, in a back bedroom. He'd forgotten all about it.

I do not know that much about them, but engraving pattern looks to be aout a G grade. Serial number places it 1909-1910 vintage. I have one that looks identical, except serial number places mine about a year later. It's the best pointing, shooting shotgun I have. My son tried it, acutally his first time at informal clay bird shooting, and not knowing what it was prefered it over a 20 ga Win 101, and Ithaca SKB, and an old Stevens 16ga sxs his grandfather left him. I guess quality speakes for itself.
