Thanks; I knew that such a barrel option would be rare. My reason is that I'm being asked to value a Specialty Grade 12 bore double trigger ejector gun, two-barrel set that was ordered with a set of 28" and 24" barrels; and the owner has a letter from Jim authenticating the 24" barrel set. Gun has been dropped and now features a poorly repaired broken stock. I've only seen a couple of pix, but gun seems to have good case color; and the owner has provenance, but how would one value such a gun with a broken stock (I believe a really good stocker could repair the original wood)? All opinions welcome.
