Here is a little info from the proof marks:

X inside shield = The gun was proofed at the Eibar, Spain proof house.

2 over crossed muskets = Final black powder proof at 8818 psi.

CH inside shield = Optional proof with smokless powder at 12,090psi.

BP inside shield = smokless proof at 12,090psi.

L.G. is the maker, Armas Lambar (antes G. Zabala) Eibar, Spain.

In general, the gun seems to be a "made to price" O/U and is pretty rough inside. I think that there is a 12-70 mark that shows that the gun is chambered for 2 3/4"(70mm0) 12ga ammo.

Thanks for the post! Really informative. I guess a price would be hard to estimate on a custom make. You mentioned it looked kind of rough inside. Do you think I should take it to a pro and have it looked at??
