Need help identifying a Antonio Zoli O/U shotgun

I live in Germany and I found a Antonio Zoli shotgun at a gun shop I’m interested in but don’t know much about them or price ranges. On the barrel it says Antonio Zoli Gardone VT, I know it’s a 12/70 gauge, and the barrel is 76cm long. On the other side of the barrel it says special chrome molybdenum steel nitro proved. The receiver is silver with if I remember right floral engravings and has a gold colored trigger. When I broke it down I found a bow and arrow proof mark and serial number 144290, picture attached. Thanks in advance for the help.

FYI I was able to buy an old, well used Sears, 20ga O/U made by Anthony Zoli for US $400 that I used for both Trap and Upland birds. Just sold it to my brother for US $550 [he's always beat me in gun trades; now's it's my turn.] If the price is not sky-high and you can afford it, I would jump on it. This Sears Zoli was one of the finest shooters I have ever owned, but I needed the money for a beautiful 20ga Beretta S57E O/U that was NOT marketed in the USA. One of those "I gotta have this one" types. I found this: Remove the barrell and look at all the stamps on the underside of the block. You will find the date code. Here are the date codes since WW2.

I - 1945; II - 1946; III - 1947; IV - 1948; V - 1949; VI - 1950; VII - 1951; VIII - 1952; IX - 1953; X - 1954; XI - 1955; XII - 1956; XIII - 1957; XIV - 1958; XV - 1959; XVI - 1960; XVII - 1961; XVIII - 1962; XIX - 1963; XX - 1964; XXI - 1965; XXII - 1966; XXIII - 1967; XXIV - 1968; XXV - 1969; XXVI - 1970; XXVII - 1971; XXIII - 1972; XXIX - 1973; ***** - 1974; AA - 1975; AB - 1976; AC - 1977; AD - 1978; AE - 1979; AF - 1980; AH - 1981; AI - 1982; AL - 1983; AM - 1984; AN - 1985; AO - 1986; AS - 1987; AT - 1988; AU - 1989; AZ - 1990; BA - 1991; BB - 1992; BC - 1993; BD - 1994; BF - 1995; BH - 1996; BI - 1997; BL - 1998; BM - 1999; BN - 2000; BP - 2001; BS - 2002; BT - 2003; BU - 2004; BZ - 2005; CA - 2006; CB - 2007;

The S57E is worth about $1000 in mint condition. A 20 guage will tack on about a $200 premium, maybe more. These guns are likely going to go up in value as people continue to appreciate their quality. You cannot buy a gun new, of similar quality for less than $2200. One last thought: Buy it & give it to me !
