I have a New Baker 10 or 12 guage, damascus barrels, side by side, double barreled shotgun. It has hammers that are cocked to fire tha gun. Of significence are the following markings: Syraquce Forging and Gun Co. Syraquse, NY; Patented June 1st, 1886, and the numbers: 1928.

The shot shells are brass,which I have unfortunately missplaced. They are somewhere in the house.

OF WHAT VALUE IS THIS GUN IN REASONABLY GOOD CONDITION? (It has no bluing left if there ever was any.)

baker shotguns were a good quality double from the time period ,,i remember having a baker batavia ejector model when i was a kid and wish i still had it today,,the downfall with your shotgun just like many damsacus guns is not a real in demand shotgun because of the low pressure loads with black powder,,if yours is in reasonable condition and tight id say it should be worth 150-250,,it's more a wall hanger than a shooter these days ,,
