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).
