    Trench sweeper is a slang term or nickname - also known as the trench broom.

    Officially it is a Trench Gun.

    If it is all original and in good condition, then it is rare and probably quite valuable - I have seen reference to $2000 +.

    Lot of repros and fakes around.

    Hope that helps a little.
