Best Answer

There is no serial number data for the Company Hopkins and Allen in the private sector available.This firm was in business from 1867-1916.No laws required serial numbers at that time,and those that were marked with a serial number have no records remaining today.If you have a single shot shotgun,these were made from 1887-1902.If the markings say Hopkins and Allen Manufg.Co.Norwich,Conn on the gun then this was made from before 1896.If you have a double barrel shotgun,then these were made from 1902-1916,when they went out of business.
