My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help you.
I'm grabbing my Parker reference to look up your serial number. Back shortly.
Based on the serial number, that is a 12 gauge, Grade 0 shotgun with a 30-inch plain twist barrel, a straight-grip stock, a visible hammer, and is opened with a top-lever.
VH is the closest grade to a Grade 0 damascus-barrel hammer gun. VH is Vulcan grade (grade 0) for a steel barrel hammerless gun, though.
The VH hammerless steel-barrel shotgun values are similar to the values for a Grade 0 hammer damascus-barrel shotgun if the gun has 80% of its original finish or better and is in working order. The values for the damascus-barrel shotguns, however, drop off more quickly from the VH pricing as their condition lowers below 80%, and especially precipitously when are below 40%.
I hope this helps.
