Can anyone help identify a Rolling Block?

I was wondering if there are any folks knowledgeable about the Remington Rolling Block that could help me identify one in my collection.  It was sold to me as an antique, Model 1867.  

Here's a few images of the guns markings.

As you can see, it's a 12 gauge shotgun.

Bottom of the barrel...

No idea what any of these markings are.  :)

A stamping on the butt...

In the most recent issue of American Rifleman, there is a short article about Rolling Block shotguns that were recently imported by Simpson Ltd, so I went to their website, and found this one.  It's in really nice shape, and I think it was well worth the asking price.  I am looking forward to shooting it.

Can anyone offer any guesses as to any specifics about the gun?

Remington action. Possibly first Swedish delivery.  Rebarreled as a shotgun.  Proofed barrel may have been ordered by a Swedish gunsmith for conversion.  More varieties than you can shake a stick at.

Uhm...  Okay.  

 

But it's actually a shotgun.


Can you be more specific?

:)

I am pretty sure it's a No. 1.

Do you have ANY reference books... Or do you just like posting pictures of your guns?
