Yes, I believe it was. I have a Model 53-B (single shot .22LR) and it says on the barrel 'SPRINGFIELD MODEL 53-B, Manufactured by J. Stevens Arms Co., Chicopee Falls, Mass. U.S.A.'
$125 0r so depends on condition & Location
I paid $25.00 for this rifle and I'm going to try to restore it. I need the year it was made before I start so I do not damage the value of it by doing so.
apparently from what i have found this rifle was bought new for like 45 bucks. maybe alittle more. and it was made between 1936 and 1948. it might be worth 100 to 125 dollars. this info is from research i did on the internet from other people askin similar questions and there responses. i think the years it was made might have been from the model 53b. they cant be that far apart from each other. the difference is the 53 a firing pin has to be reset manual. the 53 b resets when the bolt is opened. my 53 a does not have a safety and the 53b does. i dont know if im missing parts or not. i dont think that i am. hope this helps
Sometime in the 1930's or 1940's
Hey check out this website http://www.e-gunparts.com/model.asp?idDept=235 Numrich Gun Parts, i found it while researching the feasibility of a sprngfld 187n, there are tons of models listed there, they may have what you need.
Made sometime from 1933 to 1945 and worth $25 (NRA Poor) to $150 (Excellent).
The Electric Company - 1971 53B 6-53 was released on: USA: 29 December 1976
You might be able to find a buyer on eBay or a similar site, but it may not be worth the effort if the bills show any significant amount of wear. As of 06/2013, a worn '53A or '53B $2 bill would retail for roughly $2.50. But if you're lucky enough to have some nice ones with only minimal wear they might bring around $5.50 retail.

The Talmud mentions a couple of opinions on this question (Yoma 52b, 53b). Some say it was carried away at the time of the Destruction and is now in Rome. Of that opinion, some say further that the Vandals took it from Rome when they sacked Rome. Others say it is still secreted under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The Ethiopian Church of the Our Lady Mary of Zion in Aksum claims it is there, although no one unauthorized is allowed to even see it.
