Fabrique Nationale Double Barrel

I recently inherited my father's 16 ga shotgun, and know very little about it, except it is an FN. The bluing on it is in need of redoing, which I plan on just to preserve it. Can anyone provide me with any details regarding this shotgun? Thanks.

Very nice! Unfortunately (for ME), those pics are a tad small for my eyes to clearly read the markings. Hopefully, someone will be along that can see them better and help you out.
Realize that rebluing does affect value (lowering it) IF that is something that might concern you.

FN makes some great guns and in the past was the maker for the original Browning Superposeds (Over Unders)

Here is a chart of Belgian proofmarks - see which ones apply
