If it doesn't say Lefever somewhere on the gun, I don't think you have a Lefever.
That information is lost to history.. Almost nothing is known of the ancient Greek poet, Homer. One source names Homer's parents as Telemachus and Epikaste of Ithaca. but other sources give other names and places of origin. It is unlikely that the names of his parents will ever be known with any sort of certainty.
I believe that this model of shotgun like so many others was made by Crescent Firearms Co.This company made over 100 different Guns which used trademark names for the business that ordered them.Your double barrel shotgun will bring between 100-185 dollars today depending on the overall condition of the shotgun and bores.
Chances are that your international shotgun was one of the many house brand names which were made by Cresent Arms Co.I believe that they made in excess of 1,000 different house brand names for retail stores,hardware stores across the nation from 1888-1931.As such the value will be between 50-200 dollars depending on overall condition and a good set of bores.
SPAS has 2 Different names to the acronym. Prior to 1990 the SPAS-12 Shotgun was called the Special Purpose Automatic Shotgun. When the USA banned the gun from importation due to its name in 1989 it was changed to Sporting Purpose Automatic Shotgun to continue the shotgun sales to the USA until the final ban of the shotgun with the 1994 Clinton Assault Weapons Ban. It is believed less than 1850 of these shotguns are grandfathered into the USA. The Sporting Purpose version was different as it had a limited Magazine Tube Extension and a non folding fixed stock when it was imported and is the less valuable model of the two for collectors.
Your shotgun was made for Montgomery Wards (marked with their brand- Westernfield) by Mossberg, and is their model 550. As far as age- no way to tell. IF your shotgun does not have a serial number, it would have been made prior to 1968. <><><> Note to previous poster- Sears did not use the Westernfield brand- that belonged to Montgomery Wards. They DID use J.C. Higgins and Ted Williams as brand names.
Probably because everyone copied the list trade names on their web pages from the back of the Standard Catalog and it isn't there. The Catalog only lists 2 Enders model names, but Vorisek's Shotgun Markings - 1865-1940 lists 13, including the Royal American which was a Crescent Model 60. All were marked for Shapleigh Hardware of St Louis.
Is it a .410 bore shotgun or a 12 gauge? No matter. A Bridge Co. single barrel or double barrel (side to side) shotgun manufactured in 1930 is, in all likelihood, a Crescent City Arms shotgun. This company made many thousands of inexpensive shotguns under dozens of names. Collector value minimum. Practical value depends on the condition of the gun.
Interesting shotgun. The patent date is the giveaway. The shotgun was actually made by the Crescent Firearms Company which was the largest shotgun manufacturer in the US at the time. It was absorbed by HD Folsom, a huge firearm importer/distributor, and continued making shotguns for that firm under many different brand names until Folsom was absorbed by Stevens c.1930. I do not know what hardware store or mail-order store used the GET THERE brand name. Vorisek's "Shotgun Markings" attributes that patent date to WH Davenport. His entry for GET THERE indicates "unknown manufacturer" so I guess this date was not marked on the example he examined. Unfortunately, Joe passed away on Christmas Day, 2005, and I do not know what will happen to his documentation.
