Western Field Model 60 is listed in my cross-reference list as a Savage 620A. But I can't find that Savage model in any of my books. Can you describe it a bit more - single shot, double barrel, pump, bolt action, semi-automatic? Most homeowner's insurance will not need any special coverage for a few thousand dollars worth of firearms, and any Montgomery Ward will be less than a few hundred.
Anonymous - I won't say Ithaca NEVER made any Montgomery Wards guns, but there are none in my list. Give a little more description and I may be able to ID it.
Ithaca did not make any Wards Western Field Shotguns. Most were made by Stevens/Savage or Mossberg.Western Field, the Montgomery Ward brand name, should not be confused with Western Arms Company, a division of Ithaca that made shotguns that appear identical to Ithaca's Lefever Nitro Special from 1929 to 1946.

These shotguns were sold by Montgomery Ward. Montgomery Ward awarded cotracts to gun manufacturers. I don't know what years Browning produced these guns nor do I know their values. Ed
