Best Answer

The Stevens division of Savage Arms made the Riverside guns from about 1916 to 1930. It was a second-tier gun to Stevens. Fit & finish may be a little rougher than those with the company name, but still a well built utility shotgun.

It may have the equivalent Stevens model number marked on the right side of the receiver (5000, 5100, 311, etc), but they are all basically the same gun.

If it is a single-shot, value would be in the range of $50-$75. A double would bring $150-$200, if an experienced gunsmith inspects and approves it.

Of course, if it is not worn out/broken/rusted it is worth next to nothing and if like new it could bring more.

Other notes:

Are the hammers on the back of the action or mounted on the sides? The sidehammers are more attractive to Cowboy Action Shooters and decorators, but either a boxlock or sidelock of this era should still be useable.

A 16 gauge will be harder to sell in many places.

What is the value of a riverside arms company chicopee falls mass patented February 10 1914 double barrel with hammer's coach gun made for Wells Fargo company with the inlaid Wells Fargo badge?

Riverside was acquired by the Stevens company about 1920, and the Riverside name continued for about 20 years. These were utility grade shotguns. Unfortunately, there was been a brisk trade in making "Wells Fargo" shotguns- there are more out there than Wells Fargo ever owned. I would urge you to get a hands on appraisal by someone with a good knowledge of shotguns- to the best of my knowledge, Wells Fargo bought higher quality arms. Sorry to be the bearer of possible bad news-
