I handled the 20 gauge when it was on display by Julia's at the Concours d'Elegance at the Vintager's event at Sandanonna about fifteen years ago.

It was "refinished" after it sold at Julia's auction and the next time it went to auction it sold for about half the amount it had previously sold for.
I will say though, it was a hard-used gun and could certainly have used a proper refinish/resto.
