    Can't find a listing for these in any of the price guides, but CS Shattuck operated in Hatfield, Massachusetts, from 1878 to 1908. It's not a name that excites collectors and few firearms of that age would be considered suitable for any sporting use today, so value will be modest, perhaps $100 if in 80 or 90% original condition, but more likely about half that much.

    C.S. Shattuck Arms Co., Hatfield, Mass. (1878 to 1908)

    In 1875 C.S. Shattuck and Andrew Hyde started a pistol manufacturing business in Springfield, Mass. In February of 1877, Andrew Hyde and Major Charles S. Shattuck brought their Springfield pistol manufacturing business to Hatfield and went into a partnership with Mrs. Mary D. Porter in the Thomas Meekin sawmill on Prospect St., formerly Crescent Pistol Co. est. 1874 (Shattuck possibly also had, concurrently or otherwise a gun shop on Bridge St. in Hatfield, dates unknown). In 1878 Mrs. Porter withdrew her partnership and the business was continued by Hyde and Shattuck. In 1880 Shattuck bought out Hyde and continued the factory alone, turning out many revolvers. Soon after he began to make single-barreled breech-loading shotguns, and then few years later double-barreled shotguns. Large quantities of both were made, averaging for a time 15,000 guns per year. The gun shop was burned in 1881 and was immediately rebuilt on the same site. The manufacture of guns was abandoned in 1909. In 1910 the only arms being turned out was a new four-shot pistol*, but for how long is unknown.

    Major Charles S. Shattuck served with the 6th Vermont Infantry in the Civil War and later lived on Main St. in Hatfield, Mass. He returned at least once to Vermont for a military reunion.

    Shattuck was best known for inexpensive handgun and single barrel shotguns. Their single barrels are valued from $35 to $150, double barrels $100-$400 depending on condition. The 8 bores may command more.

    This all I can find. Nothing in the Blue Book

    If it looks somewhat like the picture posted I would give a little for it to use as a wall hanger if it can be sent without having to go through a FFL. Should it have a wood fore end? Ray
