Recently picked this gun up. I can't find any information on "J Butler" it appears to be a 10 gauge as a 12 gauge round is too small. It says Chicago, Illinois on the top of the barrels. Under the break it is stamped with crossed swords with a crown on top and a "v" in the lower quadrant.
I am wondering what to do with it. Any information on dating it will help immensely. Should I part it out so other guns may live on? Make it a wallhanger? Is it worth anything?
Thanks, any and all info will be greatly appreciated!!
