The Standard Catalog of Firearms lists 67 different side by side models made by Stevens. Many of them had exposed hammers, either back-hammer boxlocks or sidelocks, and most were manufactured during the time "A&T" was included in the name (1886-1916). If your gun has twist or damascus barrels, it is basically a wallhanger. If it also has side hammers, then at least it is a wallhanger with some value - generally $125-$150. If it has fluid steel barrels, regardless of the hammers, it could still be a useable gun if approved by a qualified gunsmith. Value as a shooter would be $200-$250.
