I can say that Browning started having shotguns made in 16 gauge in the year 1909.Winchester started having the model 12 shotguns made in 16 gauge in the year 1914.so I would surmise that the time frame of 1909-1915 would be the correct time frame for the introduction of the 16 gauge shotguns.
the year this gun was made was 1913. the ds grade is worth $250.00 poor to $1250.00 exe

12 has a bigger bore.
Manufactured between 1886 and 1916. Retail value $50-$75 unless in like-new condition.
