Looks like a nice honest gun minus the blued frame. It doesn't have case colors, but like I said most parkers, especially lower grade field guns don't.

The barrels appear to be in good shape.

Barrels are in great shape considering the age and the wood has a few dings but no cracks or major damage

Your barrels have also been re-blued. And based on the fact that ALL surfaces are blued (lugs, muzzle and even the cocking hook), I suspect they were hot blued which is an incorrect procedure for anything with soldered ribs. Hot bluing can severely compromise the integrity of the barrel set.

Also, you are missing your extractor retaining screw. You should get that installed as there is nothing keeping your extractor from falling out of the barrel set.

Also I checked the barrels, both ring all the way down, so I believe the solder is sound

Looking at your barrel flats, right behind the lug that is stamped "16" and "1", you'll see a threaded hole. That is where the exactractor retaining screw belongs.

Wesley did you buy that gun or was it a family piece. BTW this group is a little hesitant to throw out prices on guns since its pictures and not certain what you want to do with the gun. Also not certain if you want to sell it and the purpose of you asking for a value. There is obviously a range of value on that gun. Gut tells me between $1k and $2k, but more than likely it is somewhere in between. Others may disagree or have a more informed opinion they are willing to share. Sorry for the broad range.

BTW I am basing my thought on replacement/reproduction. If you wanted a side by side as compared to some that are on the market new like maybe a Dickinson that is new and sales for about $2k. Dickinson are not bad guns for modern sxs and not suggesting it is comparable to Parker VH quality wise. Personally I would prefer to own the Parker but it is a used gun approaching 100 years old.

BTW I have a VH 16 built in 1907 that is an honest untouched gun that I will never sale or care to price but have seen some sell between $2,500 to $3,500 as collector guns.

The other day say a 12 ga VH that had pinned stock and some other issues. They wanted $2k and had a feeling they had that gun in the shop a while and wll continue to hold onto it at that price since there were some other noted issues like the wrong DH butt plate on stock and that the funiture on forarm and stock did not match up. All other serial numbers on metal matched up though.
