Came across a OU 12 gauge. Only marking I can read are "Italguns" and "Imperator"

Tried google and couldnt find anything out about this gun. Does anyone know its history and value?

AFAIK, "Italguns International" was an importer, and not a gunmaker.

If the forend is removed and the barrels dismounted, a maker's code/mark should be stamped into either the barrel bottom or action watertable.

A few close/clear pics, might help to ID further, but the gun is most likely a "consortium" gun, i.e. a gun whose various parts were made by various different inter-related families/companies ( some just made barrels, for instance), then assembled for sale/export.
