Default Biggs and Spencer

I spent some time at William Larkin and Moore this afternoon and have several questions on several guns. I've never heard or seen a Biggs and Spencer Shotgun, it has a Chicago address, hammer 10 gauge with 2 5/8 chambers. Beautiful gun can anyone provide any information?

I found the Larkin Moore listing. Nice mid level gun. Purdey thumb underlever action as it appears. Nothing in Nigel Brown's books on Biggs & Spencer. Boothroyd only lists a Biggs, Bryant at 4 Patrick St. in Cardiff Wales in 1863.
