Need Help Identifying 12 gauge Double Barrel

I need help identifying this old 12 gauge double barrel shotgun. it has spent the last five decades or more in my friend's dark damp attic. It is in poor shape. One hammer & trigger are frozen. the otherside actually works nicely. All the joints are loose. I can find no markings on the gun. Can anyone identify it from the photo?

If you break it open, are there any marks on the receiver flats beneath the barrels? There's almost always marks on there somewhere if it hasn't been scrubbed or home made.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

Pull the wood off. Sometimes they marked it on the bottom of the barrels where it is hidden by the forestock.

Okay, I'll take it apart and see what I can find. Thanks!

That gun comes from a period when a lot of SxS wire twist guns were coming in from Belgium. Some were branded for retailers. It looks a lot like a Dumulin to me.

I understand a lot of contract guns for various stores were made by Crescent Firearms Company. I don't know if they were marked in any way to identify them.
