A double-barrel side-by-side 10 gauge cartridge shotgun with two sets of barrels. The shotgun has a checkered walnut pistol grip stock with horn caps on the butt and grip. It also has Damascus barrels, external hammers, double triggers, and foliate and pheasant engravings on the metal mountings. The barrels were made by Thomas Kilby in Birmingham, England to be assembled and retailed by M.F. Kennedy and Brothers in St. Paul, Minnesota.
