You have a Remington Model 1894 Grade A (the lowest/plainest) SxS, probably made about 1897 - and the bbl's could definitely be damascus, since they were more highly regarded at the time than the (new) fluid steel bbl's.

The best way to tell bbl material is with an acid-type test (copper sulphate, IIRC) in a cleaned hidden area, like under the forend wood, which would show up any twist/grain.
