    The best I can tell it reads:

    W Silver & CO
    Patent
    Corn hill London

    I did locate a company called SW Silver & CO. On the Internet from the same time period that dealt in a wide collection of fire arm accessories, fire arms,belt buckles, military supplies, tents, rubber, and so on. Not sure if this was a repair, or upgrade of some kind or if the company was somehow a supplier of this style of parts to Charles Daly Shotguns.
    I believe this must be the appropriate company and the "S" was cut off as it was fitted to the gun.

    However based on the extra set of holes in the wooden stock I have to assume this was a repair.

    Are you familiar with what value is estimated on a piece like this?

    What is stamped atop the top rib? What is the tube type & length & condition of inside of tubes? Is there an APUN stamped between the strikers on the standing breech?

    On the LE, I have not found such a mechanic but I would think the first name of L would have about 3 variations:

    Lebrecht
    Lorenz
    Ludwig

    And the last name of E a few more:

    Ebert
    Eckoldt
    Eckhardt
    Eckstetin
    Endter

    I would guess that Ebert & Endter would have a higher probability but who knows. So any combination is possible until some LE mechanic is found. Like many of the other subcontractors, I would guess that the mechanic LE hung out his shingle about the same time as H.A. Lindner and may have attended classes with H.A. Lindner at some point.

    Kind Regards,

    Thank you for your consideration

    The rib reads:
    Charles Daly Extra Fine Damascus Barrels Diamond Quality

    It is 12 gauge 3 inch with a 30 inch barrel. Inside the tubes are shiny and clean with no visible pitting.

    There is no APUN or any other text that I can find.

    The action is very tight and it shoots like a dream. ( I know I shouldn't shoot it but I had to try it.).

    I bought the gun from a friend of my father in law that used it as his bird gun, he was in his 80s and shot it regularly.
