Hello all!

Just joined the site here. I was hoping I could get some help with the specifics of identifying this Percussion Cap Double-Barreled Shotgun - pictures attached.

From my browsing, it seems like I have a Belgian piece, judging by the two biggest proof marks. I can also see some marks that indicate a British proof.

Aside from that, I'm having difficulty nailing down an approximate year of manufacture or model (if there is such a thing). Any help would be adored!

Some background: My grandfather (92) found this piece when he was a kid. It was in an abandoned farmhouse near an old iron furnace in rural Pennsylvania. He gave it to me because I've always admired it when I came to visit. I would love to learn all I can about this pretty nice shotgun! Though one nipple and hammer are worse for wear, and the half-cock is no longer a safety, the gun is otherwise in good shape!

Thanks!
