Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question
Trying to identify an old cap-lock blackpowder shotgun and thought you might be able to help. Right side lock plate is inscribed "Field & Langstrom". "Philadelphia". Barrel inscribed "Fine Twist" and something similar to "Wet Glaise" (sure I got that one wrong!). Relatively ornate with silver/nickel engraved fittings and a very nice walnut stock. THANKS!
Field, Langstroth & Co., (Benjamin Field, T.F. Langstroth, William P. Mason) had a hardware store at 440 Market Street in Philadelphia where they sold domestic and imported guns. They are listed at this location in the 1859 McElroy's Philadelphia City Directory.
