Best Answer

Janssen was a Belgian gunmaker. According to my notes, the company used this name c. 1892 - 1896. Answer I have a Janssen Sons shotgun that used to belong to my grandfather. It has carving on the side of the breech and the bottom. It also has carvings on the walnut stock.

I was given this same gun from my father. It has very detailed carvings in the stock and etchings on the barrel. I have been unable to find out anything about the maker or a present day price. I have looked in many of the shotgun books. My father paid 50 cents for this gun during the depression.

What is the age and value of a Janssen Sons Co The Interchangeable double barrel shotgun?

Janssen Fils & Co was making guns from 1895 to 1965. Since yours is marked in English (Sons instead of Fils) it was made for export to the US and the mass import of shotguns from Belgium was cut off by WWI and never resumed after, so it's a pretty good bet that yours was made between 1895 and 1914. Value will be determined by how nice it looks over the mantle, usually $150 to $250.

Is there any way to determine the exact date a Janssen and Son shotgun was manufactured?

The company was in business from 1895 to 1965. I do not think any factory records are available. If marked with the "and Sons" name in English, it was made for sale in the US and the import of inexpensive shotguns from Belgium pretty much ended in 1914.
