Marked on both sides of receiver "J.J. Weston". No other visible markings on outside and no visible serial number on outside or inside. No marks on inside of receiver. Bottom of barrels inside receiver marked "E" over "LG" inside oval. Other markings on bottom of barrels are "CR" and "18.2." This may be a Belgium-made shotgun according to one reference source cited below, plus it has a buttplate marked "FN" which is the Belgium manufacturer FN Herstal/Browning. The barrels are Damascus steel and are not safe for firing with modern ammo. We have not test-fired it and will not do so. We do not know for sure how old it is, nor how many rounds have been fired in it. We have no history on it. We found one unknown reference source cited on J.J. Weston Shotguns on The Firearms Forum: "Shotguns with the name J.J. Weston were made by one of two makers, one American and one Belgian and they were not made until 1890 or later. The American maker was the Crescent Fire Arms Company of Norwich, CT (1891 to 1931) and the Belgian maker was Henri Pieper of Leige Belgium. The Belgian made guns were imported between 1890 and 1914 when World War one cut off exports from Belgium. The guns were sold by H & D Folsome, a wholesaler who imported guns and owned Crescent Fire Arms as well. The way to tell the difference is to look at the bottom of the barrels under the forearm (handguard). The Belgian made gun will have proof marks consisting of the letters "ELG" stamped in an oval. There will be no proof marks on the American made gun. CAUTION! The gun was designed for the ammunition in use at the time which was black powder. It was not designed for smokeless powder of any kind and in addition if made in Belgium will have damascus barrels. It was certainly not designed magnum shells or steel shot. I dont recommend that it be fired with any kind of ammunition."\n\rInspection Policy: Unspecified\n\rPayment Methods: Money Order / Certified Check, Visa / MasterCard, American Express, Discover, See Item Description\n\rSales Tax: Seller must collect sales tax from the following states: NC 7.75%
