Most likely turn of the century
We cant verify the SD108 model number, however: The "Hercules" was the trade name used by the Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works on shotguns made for the Montgomery Ward Co. Of Chicago. The "Hercules" made for Wards was a copy of the Iver Johnson "Champion" model which is a single shot shotgun with exposed hammer. They were made between 1909 and 1956.
50-150 USD or so
Manufactured by Iver Johnson or J. Stevens for Montgomery Wards.
$35 to $90, depending on condition.
Savage/Stevens Model 5000 very much a model 311
From what I'm told the Model 50 is the same as a Savage Model 311.

No sn data published
I have a Wards Hercules 16ga model 10. Mine is in excellent condition and only worth $150.00. For that it worth just hanging on to.
I'm not sure of the value of your shotgun. I have a Montgomery Wards Hercules, double barrel shotgun, with external hammers. With all the research I have done it is a Stevens 217. I have been looking for a set of barrels for this gun. Can you describe your gun to me. Petter

Serial numbers were not required on rifles and shotguns until 1968.
The Hercules Model 10 is actually a Stevens model 94. The model 94 was manufactured between 1926 and 1945.
your Wards shotgun was made by Stevens.It is the Stevens model 94B(Tenite).These were made from 1926-1945.There were 934,000 made during this time span.
I am pretty sure the Wards Westernfield Model 53 was made by Iver Johnson. Externally the Model 53 and Iver Johnson Hercules look identical. I believe the Iver Johnson Hercules was made from 1918 to 1936.
It is worth $50-100.
