As I recall, Atkin, Grant and Lang was building current Stephen Grant guns using stock of Damascus barrels which they had submitted for Nitro Proof. I know they did this in the late 80's and 90's but don't know if that is still being done or possible with such a limited supply of Damascus barrels.

I almost robbed a bank at the time to buy one of those; but fortunately I did not as I probably would not have netted enough from the robbery.

Number inside the eagle is 3. I think it's wrotte "Rudolf Vozzerger Zacher", Zacher not Zagreb. I'm from Serbia, not Croatia. Welcome to Serbia :)
"Nicht fur kugel" is german signature.
"Nelson nickel steel" is characteristic for shotguns made in Mayenne France.
And also have belgian proof sign. This is Frankenstein :D
It's also have a picture of gunsmith, characteristic for shotguns made in german Suhl.

There was also a Liege mechanic who used that Suhl type depiction. I'll have to search a bit.

I want to think a Thonon mechanic used that trademark?

The trademark atop the toplever is very similar to the TW Suhl trademark but one of the Liège mechanics used it and I still think it was a Thonon mechanic?
