JD3020: Your shotgun is most likely Belgian of origin, and possibly manufactured by Henri Pieper or Simonis, Janssen, Dumoulin and Company. Detailed pictures of the markings on the barrels, the barrel flats and the reciever water table may provide clues to the manufacturer and will identify the countrly of origin.

Henri Pieper and Simonis, Janssen, Dumoulin and Company manufactured multiple thousands of hammered double barrel shotguns in the period 1880 to the early 1900's, that were imported into the US by wholesalers like H. & D. Folsom Arms Company (one of the largest and the prime distributor of many of Pieper's trade name guns) who also owned Crescent Fire Arms Company.
