This may be the oldest 28-gauge shotgun known. It is a breechloading centerfire design, thought to be decades ahead of its time. The shotgun is highly embellished and with a very short (approx 10 inches) buttstock, and was purchased from the estate of Napoleon Bonaparte at a Paris auction in the late 1800s. The present owner is Nick Tooth.
