Article about: I saved these parts from being melted down for scrap yesterday. Are they vintage (U.S. Civil War, for example), or are they modern? Can anyone tell me anything about them? Value?

    I saved these parts from being melted down for scrap yesterday. Are they vintage (U.S. Civil War, for example), or are they modern?

    Can anyone tell me anything about them? Value?

    Definitely old parts. Could indeed be from old percussion shotguns.
    Keep up the good work Joe. All this stuff is
    worth hanging onto.........!

    looks like a left and right side for a double barrel shotgun. percussion if the hammer face is in set. more modern if it is a flat face on the hammer. still old either way.

    Thanks for the responses, guys!

    How much do you think they're worth?

    I really have no use for these, so I'm looking for someone who would appreciate them!

    I would say that you might be able to get a 5 or 10 bucks per lock if some one that is fixing up a wall hanger needs them. Is the lock on the far left marked any thing you can make out? It looks similar to the one on my confederate 3 band enfield? If it is it would be marked with a crown 186? over TOWER. Hope this helps. Cheers, Robert.

    Something tells me that the top one with the larger hammer is not from a shotgun but a rifle. Shotgun "ears" are usually smaller than the large single percussion hammer because you have to fit two next to each other like the photo Ingrid posted. I would also say that the fact that the plate the hammer is attached to does not curve down suggests a rifle with a straight stock and not a semi-pistol grip like a shotgun. So I say top rifle bottom shotgun but thats just a theory.
