Reply | Edit | Del All Baker Gun Co Batavia NY
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am looking for information that will help me value a Black Beauty Model Baker Gun Co. Side-by-Side double action shotgun. It belonged to my great grandfather. The history that I do have about Baker, is that their guns were made prior to 1919 when the company was sold to Folsum Gun Co (I believe also now non-existant). I need to try and date the gun as well to help in its valuation. Any help would be appreciated.

Here's what th bluebok says it's worth

BLACK BEAUTY
- similar to Batavia Special with light engraving.
Grading 100% 98% 95% 90% 80% 70% 60%
$500 $440 $360 $335 $305 $285 $265

1890-1919 (sold to Folsom who continued making Baker shotguns until approx 1933) but records are so bad that every date given here has been disputed.

I do not know of any serialization charts that would pin the date of manufacture down.
