According to this, your gun would have been made after 1920 -- after the Damascus era, and well into the smokeless powder era.


Also found some other sources that indicate that only hammer guns in this model had the Damascus barrels.

You can test it with an acid if you want to make sure, but given the info, you don't have Damascus.

I'd turkey hunt with it, IF, and only IF you use lead shot, or a lead shot substitute (bismuth), and I'd probably stay with the smaller shot sizes.
