Several different companies made shotguns marked with the Sears JC Higgins brand. If you will post the model number, we may be able to tell you who made it.
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.
J.C.Higgins was a trademark used on Sears and Roebuck rifles and shotguns manufactured for Sears from 1946-1962.
Serial numbers on rifles and shotguns were not required until 1968. Most JC Higgins guns made prior to that never HAD a serial number- and yes, it is legal.
