Default OV Stamping under barrel and on receiver

I was trying to look up the value of a couple of my parker shotguns, Trojan steel and the stampings say oh VE but I do not see that in the gun value book, and he got it?

OV is the stamp that identified a gun as a Trojan, an UNgraded Parker. The VH is the 0 Grade (zero grade) and the Trojan is beneath the VH. The Blue Book of Gun Values should list the Trojan.

Pictures of your Trojan should help immeasurably in valueing your gun.
