A close friend of the family of the original owner, and an individual who is also a member of the "family" of Smith collectors.

Iam glad to hear that. When I think of the shotguns that fell into a extreme state of neglect, from the collection of the late Ernest Hemingway, among them left behind at the Finca in Cuba-- a 20 ga.M21, a .410 bore M42 and a .410 bore L.C.Smith field grade with ejectors and DT--makes me want to barf. If you have a strong stomach, you can see these and others in the second edition of Silvio Calabai & others "Hemingway''s Guns.RWTF.."There is No excuse for a rusty weapon" USMC mantra..

hopefully this thread will provide us with an opportunity to learn more about rare examples of doubleguns that most of us have never seen.

I have an early and extremely rare Daw shotgun, made in 1866. It is so far ahead of its time, people aren't aware of how rare it is.

Being made in 1866 is rare enough to survive, but the condition of this gun and the innovative aspects of it are groundbreaking for 1866. It is a centerfire gun made for outside primed centerfire shells. I doubt you will see anything like this as early as this gun.

I still take birds with it every fall...
