What is the age of a Riverside Arms shotgun?
Can't give you an exact date, but Stevens used the Riverside name from about 1920-1945 according to my notes.
== == "Riverside" was a brand model shotgun produced by the J. Stevens Co. (which was bought out by Savage in 1920) - These were utility grade double barrel shotguns manufactured between 1877 and 1988. If the serial number is prefixed with a letter it was manufactured after 1949. If there is no letter, it was manufactured prior to that. Thats the best I can do.

The fact that the gun has a s/n implys that it was indeed made by a major manufactor (many of the low cost guns of that era did not), which reinforces…

Riverside was manufactured by Stevens, so if you can identify the equivalent Stevens model, you should be able to find hammers at http://www.e-gunparts.com/ Or if you still have one hammer (or a broken one) you can take it to a local gunshow and dig through bins of miscellaneous parts looking for a match.
The Stevens division of Savage Arms made the Riverside guns from about 1916 to 1930. A utility 16 gauge double in usable condition should be worth around $200, but I'd have a good gunsmith verify that it is in good working order. Answer If an experienced gunsmith inspects and approves it as a shooter, it would be worth $200+.
