Best Answer

Janssen & Fils, Leige, Belgium, c 1890-1915. Several million similar utility shotguns were imported US in this time period, few of any collector interest. It probably has large side hammers that are attractive to decorators and damascus or twist barrels that are probably no longer safe for use. Leaves a value in the neighborhood of $125-$150 as a mantle piece.

What is the age and value of a Janssen Fils side by side shotgun with 90197 on the breech?

I suspect this is a utility shotgun made in Belgium circa 1900 (+/- 15 years). Value will be determined by how nice it looks over a mantle, usually between $100 and $250. Janssen did make some higher grade pieces, so if you have fine engraving, checkering, and/or a silver plate for the owner's name, it could bring more, but not very much more.
