    I'd like to know the value of an engraved 20 gauge Model 12 that I have. 2 3/4" chamber. 28" raised, ventilated rib barrel marked improved cylinder. I'd call it unblemished, presentation grade wood, compared to others that I've seen. I'll try to get some pictures on in a while. serial # 563XXX

    Ed,
    from your brief description and serial # range, your gun sounds like an upgraded field grade. A picture would be helpful to determine value. The value will be in the quality of the upgrade.

    Ed,

    This is a custom gun, I have seen several similar in the $3500.- $5000. range. Bill Jaqua used to have several all the time. It would improve the value if a noted engraver did the work. I had a factory skeet which I had Pigeon wood and #5 with gold engraving added. I sold it for $5000. 15 years ago and the buyer knew it was not factory.

    I used to live in Philly and shot with you some over 10 years ago.
