I have purchased a 12gauge double barrel shotgun with rabbit ears. The barrells are 30". On top of the barrel it says fine damascus. On the bottom of the barrels are the numbers 1929.
About 2" below that is the number 12. When the gun is broken open there are 2 letters H.R. Further down is 18.2. Then there is a symbol with 12g in it. Below that is another symbol that looks like an oval shape with a crown on top that has ELG with a star below inside the symbol. There is also a mark that looks like a V. Other markings I cannot make out. Thanks for any help.

You have a Belgium shotgun with the Parker name on it. Many inexpensive Belgium guns were imported to the US with famous names on them.

Warning - don't shoot that gun until it has been examined and OK'd by a good gunsmith.

Some people say no damascus barrel is ever safe to shoot with modern ammo. Those of us who have experienced spiritual enlightenment know that some damascus barrels are perfectly safe, but only if they pass inspection by a knowledgeable gunsmith (where damascus is concerned, most aren't) and if they are shot only with special low-pressure ammo that generally is not available in a local gun shop.

It would be best to hang the gun on the wall for decoration.
