The shotgun is a single shot blackpowder gun with a damascus steel barrel labeled fine twist.The manufacturer is Forehand Arms in Worster, Mass.

Go over to and ask. This group knows older guns better than most and focuses primarily on side-by-sides and O/U guns. I suspect that your gun was made in the U.S. and was sold by one of many hardware stores that had guns stamped with their name. Tell us about any proof marks on the action flat as that will help.
