If patented in 1913 the shotgun is most likely was made before 1920. There is not really any way to get an accurate date without knowing more about the gun.
That patent date identifies a Stevens single shot.
i don't know this answer but i have a this exact shotgun that was patented on this exact date that was given to me from my grandpa
If you have a single shot shotgun,then it is worth 50 dollars,if you have a double barrel shotgun then the value could be up to 400.00 dollars,depending on the overall condition and the bores are in good shape.
I'm interested in the same info. I have a 12 guage that only says Long Tom and August 12, 1913. I don't see the "J Stevens" anywhere. Where do you find that? This was my Father's gun that he bought used around 1935. That's all I know about it.
It would have been made by Stevens/Savage between 1920 and 1948. Might be worth $75 on a good day.

Have the 12 gauge, single shot palmetto arms co., electro steel choke bored, patented august 12 1913. It also has 2 other markings on it, 657 EE on barrell and in the chamber. Then on the small forward snap off stock is also is stamped in the wood 7 B 1, I read that is an indicator as to where and when it was made. What can you tell me about this weapon? Thank you so much for your time, Frank
