I have an oil painting of my grandfathers horse "Buckshot". This was painted when he lived in Ireland during my moms high school years. It was given to me because I was the only one in the family to carry on the horse tradition. I used to have his old cavalry saddle until it finally disintegrated. He was 1st cav in the phillipines during WWII. My dh has a 22 Remington rifle from his dad. Again these are not monetary in value but have huge sentimental value. My parents still have all the cool stuff like the silver tea set that belonged to my great grandparents, the jewelry that belonged to my grandparents and the civil war officers sword handed down from generation to generation. When the tie comes these things will be split amongst my sisters and I.

I'm looking at a painting that my Uncle Joe did. It's at least 35 years old. His death was ruled a suicide, Grandpa (his Father) always believed that he was murdered. I recently sold a crosscut saw that my Great Uncle Clarence (Unkie) had. I still have the fishing net from when "Unkie" took took us kids fishing at Promentory Park on the Clackamas River here in Oregon.
I have a couple glass items that belonged to my Mother's Mom. One is a small stained glass pane with flowers pressed in it.

I have a DBL Barrel 12 Guage Shotgun from Riverside Arms Patent date Feb 10 1914 that belonged to my Grandfather, I have no idea what it is worth. It is in fair to good condition. I am guessing maybe $250.00 but I will not sell it asI will pass it on to one of my 3 sons.

Hung this in the RV last fall via the 3M Command removable tape strips system. Hope it survives winter cold and doesn't fall. Anyway, it's from 1927 and the guy on the left is Grandpa on my Mom's side. Dad always wanted his gun but never got it due to Grandpa not wanting to be responsible for any accidents that may happen with guns in a house that had kids. 1927 yes people hunted becuase they had to, not just for sport. Did they eat black bear meat???? Well, deer and buffalo are darn good so I suppose so, who knows.

Not really the venue for this and I apologize in advance for a ONE post reply.

What is the value of a hammerless double barrel shotgun that says Riverside Arms Company Chicopee Falls Mass patented April 20 1915 on the side and is this a Stevens 311

Is a good place to start. Your shotgun (like my families old ones) most likely should be moved to the wall over the fireplace and kept for sentimental value only. They are VERY common and most sell for between 100 and 200 dollars.

I have a mantle clock that my Grandmother brought to Canada from Ireland. When they passed I drove from Dallas Texas to Toronto for mygrandmothers funeral and got the clock that was promised to me 65 years ago. It will stay in my family.
