Your guns were made between 1886 and 1916 when "Arms & Tool" were part of the company name. The "low ID numbers" don't mean much as they are not true serial numbers and may have been used over and over (every 10,000 guns probably). Value will depend on the configuration and condition. Side hammers usually go as mantle decorations, especially if they have damascus barrels ($75 for single shots, $125-$150 for double barrels). Boxlocks (back hammer or hammerless) in good shape can bring $75 (single) to $250 (double) as shooters.

Serial numbers on long guns were not required in the US until 1968, so many manufacturers did not assign them to shotguns and small-caliber rifles.

Serial numbers were not required on long arms before Jan 1, 1969. Most manufacturers did not assign serial numbers to small caliber rifles or utility shotguns.

Your stevens model 9478 shotgun was made during the years 1978-1985.while serial numbers were on the shotguns I do not believe that serial number records were kept as to the year of production.

May not have one- US law did not require a SN on rifles and shotguns until 1968.

The serial number range for the Stevens model 520-30 military shotguns is from 30,000-70,000.As to the year of manufacture you will probably have to contact Savage/Stevens directly.
