If it is marked "J. Stevens Arms & Tool Co" it was made before 1920 and, of course, after the 1907 patent date. If it has exposed hammers and twist or damascus barrels, it's primary value is as a mantle decoration (probably $125-$150), but if it is hammerless with fluid steel barrels and 2 3/4" chambers, it could still be a shooter ($250+/-) if checked and approved by a competent gunsmith. Why are you so quick to condemm anything that has Hammers , twist or Damascus Barrels. Enlighten yourself and start reading the Double Gun and Single Shot Journal. Competent people there have tested these old guns with proof loads and found none to be lacking in strength . What you are saying has all been debunked. I will take a Double or single Damascus barreled gun to the field any day, sure i will measure the chambers and fit my ammunition to the gun and not fire proof loads in it everytime. Clue yourself in and take some advice from someone who has shot for a long time, your maximum loads and 3 inch shells wont fill your bag if you cant put them in the right place .
