I have an antique double-barrel shotgun that says "J.P. Clabrough & Brothers, London laminated steel" on it. It also has the number N13526 on it. I was just wondering how much it is worth.

About $10,000 if 24 caret gold plated and inset with rubies and diamonds. Otherwise value depends on the guns condition, the amount of original finish remaining on the metal and wood and the mechanical condition.None of this was addressed in your question. The story of J.P. Clabrough & Brothers involves two retail stores, one located in Birmingham, England and the other in San Francisco, Ca, both operated by the same family. The English store operated from 1719 to 1937 while the California store operated
from 1867 to 1957. All the shotguns sold were made in England. While I have no serial number-year made tables your gun sounds like one of the early made guns.It was designed for black powder ammunition and has damascus (laminated) barrels. It is not safe to shoot using modern ammunition. Its value is as a collector or wall hanger, As said, value depends on condition and can range from a high of maybe $195 for one in prime condition to less than $10 for a rusty rotten incomplete piece of junk fit only for a tomato stake. Most sell on the various auction sites for $50 to $100.

condition is everything but $50-$100 on various auction sites is not correct. there are 5 for sale from a low of $995 to a high of $2800 depending on model and condition. there are guns sold on some fine gun dealers webpages in that range also. quality English sidelocks are not generally $50 wall hangers.
