You have the date of manufacture pretty close. No earlier than the 1913 patent date, and actually before 1916. New England Westinghouse purchased the Stevens plant in 1916 and used it to make Browning machine guns and Mosin-Nagant (Russian) military rifles. In 1920, the facility and Stevens name were purchased by Savage Arms Co. There is a lot of information on the Stevens company because it was one of the earliest US manufacturers of cartridge firearms (established in 1864 I believe). Stevens made several models of single shot shotguns, but there's not much collector interest in them, so there's not a lot of specific information available. Some models are probably scarcer than others, but most references just lump them all together and say they were produced from 1864 to 1948. Even in very good condition, most won't bring more than $75, but a 410 may bring twice that much.
That patent date identifies a Stevens single shot.

If you are asking about a Browning Auto-5 shotgun,then it was made in the year 1923,with the serial number that you have provided.
Mine is stamped on the underside of the reciever. Take off the fore end and it should be easy to find....
Manufactured in Belgium by Simonis, Janssen, Dumoulin & Co.
The "J.Stevens" name was shortened to "Stevens" in 1940. What you need to look for is the chamber size, which should be stamped on the barrel. It needs to be 2 & 3/4 inches to shoot modern ammo. Also Stevens usually stamped near the chamber size if the barrel was proof tested. My Stevens single is stamped "Proof Tested Steel" and it handles modern ammo well, but kicks like a mule. To be really safe, let a gunsmith look at it.
$14000 i think says jacko Scott $14000 i think says jacko Scott
Not a model number. If you are finding that stamped behind the trigger guard it is an assembly number. In any event, virtually any Stevens single-shot shotgun is going to sell for less than $100. firstname.lastname@example.org
1928, it will be date code stamped on the barrel. See related links for information on the Remington Society of America.
