Here is a great looking gun that was used as an illustration piece in the wonderful new book on Confederate & Southern Agent Marked Shotguns by Russ Pritchard, Jr. & John Ashworth, Jr. The book covers the shotguns that were often pressed into military service by Southern soldiers, especially the cavalry. On pages 232 and 233, they have multiple illustrations of this exact gun. It is one of the guns that was sold by the man that is best known for making the Confederate revolvers, T.W. Cofer. Cofer was located in Portsmouth, Virginia and made some of the Whitney pattern revolvers for the Confederacy. In 2016, the revolver witht he serial number "1" sold for $149,500. This gun was made in Belgium and brought to Virginia for commercial sale. The bottom of the full-length 31 inch barrels have the Birmingham proof markings. Each barrel fires a blast of 12 Gauge or as the English say, 12 Bore. Along the rib of the barrel top it has the desirable marking "T.W. COFER PORTSMOUTH, VIRGINIA" in a beautiful design and it still retains some of the original gold wash to make the name stand out better. At the breech of the barrels it has the two silver bands. It is designed with the 2 front action style lockplates and they each have the engraving that includes the pheasant designs. One of the lockplates catches on both positions and the other hammer catches on one of the two. The stock is made of a single piece of walnut wood. The underside of the forestock has some wear as you can see in the images. On the front side of the shoulder stock flat it has the German silver capbox. This is a cool looking classic style double barrel shotgun with the desirable Portsmouth, Virginia retailer marking of T.W. Cofer.
