Ok your going to need to look closely at the proof marks, this will tell you as about the guns as possible, if manufacturers records survive then some can be accessed for a fee or you can contact the likes of Diggory Hadoke who is a firearms historian and valuer, or holts the auctioneers T Wild is a well known maker. Hi res photos of the guns and especially proof marks are the order of the day. There are some good American websites but the values are meaningless to UK market.

 

Try here for info on the T Wild http://www.rowlandwatson.co.uk/ For the Et Etienne have a look at this http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=217279 and here http://www.shotguns.se/html/france.html
