Default Black Powder Shotgun

My father (who was a gunsmith decades ago) stopped by my shop today.

He brought an old rabbit-ear black powder shotgun with him that he has been working on for months.

It is very old and has no markings on it except ELG and a star stamped on the underside of the barrel. The stamping is less than half the size of a dime.

We are trying to find out something (anything?) about this shotgun. If anyone is familiar with the ELG stamp please let me know. Any other thoughts would also be appreciated!

They are pre-WWI shotguns made in Belgium. The star and ELG are proof marks. Any other marks such as a crown or the number 12 near the star?
