I just received my new to me Janssen Fils & C SxS. Well kinda received..for the 5th time this year my approval has been "Delayed". I know... I need to get my CWP.

I have been trying to decipher the Proof Marks.
I figured out:
Black Powder proof.
Choke xx.x post used post 1924
S# 89736
Gauge & Length 20/70 post 1924

But nothing else, including the date of manufacture and the smokeless proof

I was hoping to shoot it this weekend but now I have concerns about the safety of that decision as I am new to Older guns

Thanks so much,

Jim

PS...Yes T-P i have posted this elsewhere.
