what is a J C Higgins Model 583.9 20 gauge worth
High Standard shotguns made before 1969 did not have serial numbers except for some exported models and the Model 10-A bullpup. Your shotgun has no serial number.
Without a serial number, the question can not be answered. Even then, you will have to find a book that has been published with serial number data.
There were no serial numbers on the model 21's. all you will find is an assembly date code and a sears reference number beginning 583.__ .
That's not a serial number- it is a model number. Made prior to 1968. serial numbers not required- and cannot be dated for that reason. Sorry.
JC Higgins never made shotguns. That is a Sears model number. Shotguns were made by other companies using the Sears brand name- JC Higgins. Yours is likely a High Standard shotgun. If it has no serial number (most did not) it was made prior to 1968. Serial numbers were not required by law until then.
