Default Please help identify this H&R shotgun

My uncle has an old H&R 12 gauge single shot. The only thing stamped on the gun that I can find is the serial number (195**) and the patent dates (which I don't have). The picture below is not the gun in question, but very, very similar. Could someone please give me a little info on this gun? Model, year, etc...?? Thank you very much

Default Circa 1800's

My father has one that looks very similar. Believed to be dated circa late 1800's. Been in the family for 4 generations.

I have my great grandfather's old H&R. Very similar to the one you have pictured. His was made in the 1910s
It's pretty loose, adn it has a firing pin in it that he made himself. Not a shooter, but a piece of family history. They were really common and usually not worth much money.
