This would be a Stevens single shot worth up to $75.
Sears Roebuck co.
Brand name used by Sears Roebuck for firearms and sporting goods. They were made by several different companies, and marked with the Sears JC Higgins brand.
It should be marked on the barrel or recieiver.
Made for Sears by High Standard around 1952. Good utility shotgun, only brings $150 or so on the market, but a solid shooter nonetheless. firstname.lastname@example.org
Your shotgun is a High Standard Flite King, made for Sears. Not a very expensive gun, they are good quality hunting grade shotguns. Prices typically are $100-$140 or so.
There are more than a few J. C. Higgins marked shotguns and values vary by model. More information is needed in order to provide an answer.
JC Higgins was a Sears brand for guns sold by them, made by others, including Stevens. Your shotgun could be either or both- depends on what is marked on the gun.

Sears Roebuck used the Ted Williams trademark from the early 1950s until they stopped selling firearms and related items in the 1970s.
50-100 or so
The Stevens Model 520 was built on a Browning patent and so marked. Stevens also built the gun for Sears before World War II under the 'Ranger' tradename, so if you have a slide-action shotgun marked 'Ranger' and 'Browning Patent' then that is what you have.
Would need to know exactly how that gun is marked.
Sears sold rifles, shotguns and handguns. Most were made by companies such as Savage, Marlin, High Standard, but marked with the Sear's brand name- JC Higgins, or Ted Williams.
Even Sears & Roebuck did and never did make guns, theirs and JC Higins were made by Remenington No. JC Higgins was just a brand name used by Sears Roebuck on guns made by Stevens, Mossberg, and other manufacturers. The same companies made the same guns for the Gambles hardware chain, so there are identical models marked with different retailers' names.
Sears sold firearms for over 100 years. Most were made by other companies (Remington, Savage, Marlin, Mossberg, etc.) for Sears but marked with the Sears trade names of J C Higgins or Ted Williams.
The Ranger name was used by Sears Roebuck in the 1940's and 50's. I don't show your exact model number in my cross-reference lists, but 103.x was marked on their firearms made by Marlin. According to Brophy in his Book on Marlin Firearms, Sears used the Ranger name prior to WWII on the gun that Marlin sold as the Model 90 o/u shotgun starting in 1937. After WWII Sears used the JC Higgins name on the gun.
Sears didn't make guns - they sold guns marked "Sears" which were made for them by many different manufacturers. Most bolt action shotguns were made by Mossburg.
