it.s an early 50s model...semi automatic shotgun..
The JC Higgins 583.7 bolt action shotgun was made in late 1946 of early 1947.
Made around the turn of/early part of the century.
Savage-Stevens, early-mid 40's through 50s
Late 1940s- early 1950s
It sounds to me like you have a Early made Ithaca Baker model double barrel shotgun made in 1889-1890.As to value I would have someone with the knowledge to evaluate you gun and then he could assign a value for you.
Early 1960's. There will be a two upper case letter assembly date code on the barrel. http://www.histandard.info/PDF/Sears%20Shotguns.pdf
An early model Lefever single-barrel 12-gauge shotgun with a 30-inch plain barrel can be found for sale online for $300. This is the price for one that is in excellent condition.
Unfortunately, W. Richard was a low quality shotgun that attempted to cash in on the very fine quality Westley Richards guns. No connection between the two. Made early 1900s. sold by Sears.
I own an old ,early 1900 or older 12 guage hanover arms shotgun,given to me in hanover,pa.It has outside hammer triggers and a twisted steel barrel
The patent for Newport Model CN double barrell shotgun is 1915, but Newport was a named given to guns made by J Stevens, Ivers Johnson, and Crescent Arms. So most likely it was made in the early to mid 1900's.
This would be an early H&R shotgun from 1905-1940, or thereabouts. The 36" barrel makes it more interesting.
Made between the early 1920s and 1940s by Stevens for Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett and Co. $150-$250, depending on condition.
101 Sears vendor code is Savage Stevens early to middle 50s . J C Higgins guns were sold from 1946 to 1962 How ever Stevens did not supply guns to JC Higgins until 1950 Your gun was Stevens 5100 double barrel shotgun a good shotgun .But the Tenite (plastic stocks) limit its appeal to the average shooter .A Stevens collector or J C Higgins collector would pay more .and the next thing is condition 100 to 250 dollars depending on condition maybe more in new or near new condition.CORRECTION: My grandfather was born in 1942 and when 6 years old received from his father a J.C. Higgins 101.25, and my grandfather still has the gun. So the mid-to-late 40's was the LATEST inwhich Stevens/savage started supplying firearms to sears
These were shotguns distributed by the HD Folsom Co to major hardware/catalog retailers in the early 1900's. Manufactured by Crescent Firearms. email@example.com
Many early ones may not have a serial number. If they do, it will most likely be on the side of the receiver. There is a small chance it will be inside, after you remove the barrel.
I paid $80 for one early September 2009. Price will vary depending on condition.
S.H.C. stood for Shapleigh Hardware Company. The shotgun was more than likely made by either a Belgium company or Cresent Fire Arms Com.. It was very common in the late 1800's and early 1900's for arms companies to stamp the hardware stores "logo" on a shotgun or .22 for a fee.
50-100 USD or so
Your shotgun was made by Harrington & Richardson for High Standard this was the very first J C Higgins Shotgun Nov 1945 These in good or better condition it should be worth between 100 to 125 dollars. However threr are H&R collectors an there is even a few J C Higgins collectors out their they wuold consider pre model 10 jc Higgins as quite the jewel and offer considerably more epecially if its nice shape. The early pre model 10s are scarce and a must for any H&R shotgun collector . They are also excellent shotgun much better made than alot of the new stuff
Probably early 1900's
I just purchased one at auction for $250 in quite good condition. An early tag attached to the trigger guard says "Perkins,London 1840". Perkins is on the side plate. London is between the barrels on top.
Early 1960's. Value up to $175. http://www.histandard.info/PDF/Sears%20Shotguns.pdf
