W.W.Greener in his book ,The Gun, Ninth Edition ,pages 415 & 416 reviews the "Spurious gun and its detection". Albert Greener is specifically mentioned as Spurious.
One of the best books for identifying the source of a gun suspected to be spurious is, "The Golden Age Shotgunning, By. Bob Hinman. Appendix "A"in this book identifies by name/ source most of the guns made/ imported into the U.S.A. circa 1860-1920.

There are real Albert Greener guns out there. The few I've seen are up to WW standards.

There was an Albert Greener, son of W.W. who worked for his father. Guns were made by Albert and marked as such. He later moved to the U.S. and set up business there. So, could be legitimate or could be a forgery. It needs closed examination. Lagopus…..

According To Graham Greener[The Greener Story pages 38-39]Hammer guns made before 1874 engraved," A Greener," or J.H. Greener bear legitimate names. Guns made after 1874 bearing these are Spurious.
Just too many brothers Greener in the gun business for W.W. Greener's liking, one brother decided to immigrate to the U,S.A. the other Joseph Henry, was sent to Australia!
