My Dad has a Henry Arms Belgium Double Barrel Side by Side Shotgun. The serial # is 44427215. He was interested in the date of mfg and possible value. Thank you for your help.

Please post full size high resolution images of every mark on the barrel flats and action flats, and of the action.

Welcome to SGW, John ! ! {hs#

The reason behind Drew's post is that the various proof marks in hidden areas, like the barrel bottoms, barrel flats & action watertable flats, would be the best bet for determining the age (and plenty of other info).

As to value, there are Belgian made guns, and then there are Belgian made guns - and not all were created equal (why close/clear pics of the outside also would help with value).
