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

@ 100 USD or so.
The guns Hercules guns made by Stevens and sold by Wards were made around 1910 to 1940
Serial numbers were not required on rifles and shotguns until 1968.
Manufactured by Iver Johnson or J. Stevens for Montgomery Wards.
50-150 USD or so
Chances are your shotgun was made by savage/stevens for the montgomery wards company.
50-150 or so
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.
What is the year a Hercules 12 gauge shot gun made
Wards sold single shot and double barrel IJ shotguns under the tradename of Hercules.
I would guess it was made by Stevens.
Mossberg made the Wards model 550cd. In fact, they made all of the 500 series shotguns sold by Wards. lcj
Surely there are more markings on the gun. I can find a similar number on a Western Field (Montgomery Wards) double barrel shotgun which makes me suspect that it is Stevens/Savage 311 re-branded for Wards. This model designation was used after 1948.
