One of my references shows two over/under shotguns by Francotte that were offered in 20 gauge. Both were introduced around 1950, so that is probably a match. Here are the two models:

Model 9/40 SE, hand-checkered straight or pistol-grip stock of European walnut, double triggers, automatic ejectors, Anson & Deely boxlock, and has detailed engraving. No longer in production.

Value:

$8,700 perfect condition

$6,000 excellent

$4,800 very good

Model SOB.E/11082

Same description as the previous model, but with less elaborate engraving.

$6,300 perfect condition

$4,400 excellent

$3,500 very good

Blue Book does not list these guns. The values above are from the 18th Edition of Modern Gun Values.

I hope this helps.

Philip
