Default Reading Identification Marks on Franchi Shotguns

I am new to this forum and need some help on how to interpret the identification marks on a Franchi over & under 20 ga /chambers 3" mod/full . Markings on barrel S.P.A luigi Franchi RRFSCIA Made in Italy. Under the forearm barrel is marked ACOIAD DOGNE SUPEROROMAID 15.9 15.8 . Action area, pheasant on ingraved on the right side, and a partridge on the left. I would like to find out the year made, value and model. I have searched the web with no success. Any help to identify this Franchi shotgun would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

you might want to try these sites:

"Gun ID and Value" on www.shotgunworld.com

"Firearms Research" forum on www.thehighroad.org

"Harley Nolden's Institute for Firearms Research" forum on www.thefiringline.com

Take a better look at the markings on the barrel....RRFSCIA is BRESCIA....a town in Italy which has been the hub for most italian guns for over 200 years.

ACOIAD....can it be ALCIONE--- a popular Franchi model
You got me on the DOGNE

SUPEROROMAID......."superoposta" (spell check...might be spelled using Italian ebonics)....Italian for O/U

"Browning Superposed" Browning O/U

A pic will help greatly

This is not what the OP has..your Sauer/Franchi Favorit grade was made in 12ga only...and does not have game birds in the engraving.
