Wards Hercules 410 was made by different manufacturers through out it's history. The early models from the 1920's had no model number just "PROOF TESTED 410 GAUGE" stamped on the left side and "SELECTED FORGED STEEL" stamped on the right side of the barrel. Model numbers were stamped on later guns. They usually don't fetch much $$

You need to post the model number of the gun. It will be stamped right into the barrel.
Open the action. It is stamped on the water table, which is the flat part of the frame where the barrels sit. email@example.com

25-100 USD, 12 gauge is a shotgun, not a rifle.
They are date code stamped on the barrel, see related links for information on the Remington Society of America.

It is worth $50-100.
Hercules was made by Iver Johnson from 1918-1943, Hercules name dropped in late 30's!
Typically they are stamped on the receiver of the auto and pump action shotguns either on the bottom or the side. Low and moderate priced bolt action shotguns produced in the 1940's and 50's may not have had serial numbers. Later bolt action guns had the serial number stamped on the receiver, usually the side. Serial numbers were not mandated until 1968. You may not have one.
A Western Field Mod 30 is a Savage Mod 520 Model 30 (based on Stevens/Savage 520) was a pump action shotgun and came in 12 and 16 gauge, but NOT 20 gauge or .410 gauge. Model 30 (based on Kessler model 30C) was a bolt action shotgun and also only came in 12 and 16 gauge. There is some confusion about model 30 Western Fields because there were two very different variations, both pump and bolt action types. If your Western Field shotgun only has "model 30" stamped on it, with no other alpha-numeric designation such as 25EKN or SB526, then it is likely a pump action 12 gauge.
Not enough information to answer that question. Need to know the other markings.
If it is a double, remove barrel and you will see it along with serial #.
