THis is not the name of the shotgun, but kind of barrel, made in Belgium. Acier means Steel, and Cockerill stands for "Cockerill-Sambre" the name of the steel maker.
No published sn data in the public domain. <><><> Guns from this VERY old maker are all custom made- and as such, there is little cataloging. However, if you go to the link below, there is an inquiry form that may get you a little more info. A basic Francotte shotgun started at $18,000.
Tje serial number is 18959. Can you tell me what year this was made and how much it is worth?
Alot probs. depends on how gd the condition is. x
Unfortunately, no- other than an educated guess that you may have a Belgian shotgun. Acier is not a brand- it means steel. Many are marked Acier Cockerill- which is the company that made the steel.
This goes back to the beginning of the auto 5 production in 1903. John Cockerill was a British Industrialist whose company supplied high quality steel to Fabrique Nationale (FN) which was the maker of the A-5. The Cockerill name was first used on Browning barrels stamped "cockerill steel". The steel was a very strong quality that met the proofing requirements of guns that were shooting smokeless powder. Eventually the Cockerill name was dropped from the barrels and "special steel" was used instead. The FN guns that were not sold to Browning in the US, uses the barrel stamp of "acier special" which means special steel in the French language.
the "elg" means made in belgium after 1893. the 12 in a diamond means 12 gauge. The script AE and tower (le Perone) are also Belgian proof marks and the AF may stand for Auguste Francotte & Co, a gunmaker established in 1849 and still in business today.
I have a full ckoke 168, Liege double barrel 12 guage shotgun. The serial # is 10003 and the model is a "Leader". I am looking for the approximent value of it or a way to find it out. I have one also serial no. 19203, 12 ga. 30" F& IC. It has engraving and looks like a Francotte. I have the same question!!!
Marlin made these for Sears but I do not know the exact date when they started or stopped producing them for them.
It is a shotgun
