Made in Belgium (ELG proofs), made of steel (as opposed to iron I suppose) from the Cockerill-Sambe metalworks (ouside of Liege, Belgium), sold by A. Gobin, Arqibusier (shotgun maker/dealer) in Paris, France. 16 gauge, 2-9/16" chambers, cylinder choke. The thingy that looks like a hammer (upside-down) is the Perron, a breeching proof. Crown over N is an inspector's mark. Made in 1976 (o date mark?) or 1936 (o date mark). M* is the mark of Scorpion Maurice (1976) or Couchant Louis (1936), the controller of proofs during that period. Proofed for smokeless powder (crown over PV).
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
