    This is from a Google cache. The link to the original page doesn't work. An old post on shotgunworld.com gave a value of $100 to $300. John

    Nord has given you most of the information. There were several different versions of the name Interchangeable such as just Interchangeable made by the Auguste Francotte & Co., (The) Interchangeable, Belgium Twist, Star of David Brand,T. Dumoulin made by the T. Dumoulin Co., (The) Interchangeable Warrented Gov'T Neumann Bros Choke Bored made by Neumann Frerres, Interchangeable Marvel made by Neumann Frerres, The Interchangeable Model of 1901 made by Simonis, Janssen & Dumoulin and finally Interchangeable Fine Damascus made by F. Dumoulin & Co. imported by Thomas Leary 1902 to 1904. I'll bet if you look again you will find this marking on your gun. You have to give all the markings in their entirety for correct identification. All these makers were located in Belgium around Leige. Just what was interchangeable about these guns was, I don't know.
