Hi........newbie to this site.....thanks in advance for advice and comments.

About 10 yrs ago I acquired the following O&U Cape Gun from the man who bought it over in Germany:

7x57R/16ga; 25" barrel(s); double triggers (adjustable); side plated, silver engraved action w/ Greener Cross Bolt, iron sights, sling swivels & raised solid engraved rib.

Barrel Markings: Antonio Zoli Arms Gardone V.T. ITALY
HEGE GMBH & CO SCHWAB. HALL GERMANY
SPECIAL NICKEL = CHROME STEEL NITRO PROVED.
Botton of action says: ANTONIO ZOLI
Grip Cap and Butt Plate are a black, finely checkered (bakealite) type material. Butt Plate has the words: HEBSACKER GERMANY in the center of a 1" dia circle. P.G. stock and forearm are oil finished w/ raised cheek piece, 20 lines per inch checkering and figured walnut.

Bores are excellent; action is tight; gun over-all is 98+%, and puts (3) 139 gr Sellier & Bellot soft points into 2" at 100 yards with the iron sights.
Gun appears to have been fired VERY little (no wear signs) and was carried very little..no scratches or dents in wood. MFG in 1967.

Since I'm in the 2nd half of my 8th decade, I am no longer hunting big game and my bird hunting is taken care of w/ a 28 ga O&U. So I don't use this gun at all.

Please....... What have I got....What might it have as "Street Value"?
Thank you.
