Default Old hammer gun

My boss brought an old side by side for me to research for him, one that his dad came across years ago. It is in pretty rough shape, one hammer is broke off and a little rusty but all in all a pretty interesting piece. It is a 12 Bore Samuel Ebrall of Shrewsburg. Pin fire side by side hammer shotgun with a Jones rotary under lever, non-rebounding back actions locks, border and scroll engraved and with makers name, 30" Damascus barrels, early type with no extractors, Circa 1837, Walnut stock. Will have some pics tomorrow, got the camera out and the battery was dead so its on charge right now. He is talking like he might want to sell it, but I will have to find out for sure.
