I recently purchased a Joseph Golcher Shotgun. It has his name on the Lock and a large "G" monogramed on the metal between the dual barrels. I believe it is a Golcher shotgun because of the G on the barrel. From what I have read many gunsmiths used the locks and the muzzleloaders were named for who made the barrel. Many barrels are unmarked. My shotgun is very similar in appearance to yours. I have not taken any photos of the gun yet.
