12/LC in a diamond is a bit ambiguous. Some sources say it is for chambers of 3 or longer, while others say it for chambers longer the 3".
I believe that uns having 3" chambers are known to exist with either the 12/C or 12/LC mark. Either way, the 2 3/4" chamber is marked with the regular 12/C mark.

I have 14397 (which I purchased from Buzz) and 1907 sounds about right. From what I have read, HJ made Imperials from c1905 to c1910.

Thanks very much , Sandlapper

I have tried to locate the Hussey production records for years and have communicated with a fellow who has compiled an extensive database of HJ Hussey guns. He has also searched for production records for years and he believes they are long gone or sitting in a box on a shelf in some dusty old basement lost to time.

Sportarm in the UK owns the Hussey name now. They said at one time they were going to start making a gun again. They also were going to start selling some items like clothing and such.
Take a look at their site

As a guy who owns a nice Imperial, I was excited to hear that they were going to take over the Hussey name primarily because it would increase brand awareness and might even drive up the value of the old guns. Looking at the Hussey branded stuff they have now, I can't say that I'm overly impressed but hopefully there is more to come. Unless they have contracted with a company in Spain or Italy to produce a Garbi or Gurlla quality gun they can sell at a mid-market price, I can't see them actually bringing a Hussey labeled gun to the market.
