If the shotgun maker is John Dickson and Son, then it could definitely be worth a very healthy sum.

Pictures would help.

Menace, I have sent through the original order info for your Dickson gun.

If anyone else would like any info on John Dickson & Son guns, drop me a PM.

Also, if you have one for sale, I would be interested in purchasing, in any condition.

Cheers
