I could be wrong, but I believe it was Sears/Roebuck.
The value of a 12 gauge Sears and Roebuck single shot bolt action model 14 will vary depending on the condition. If the gun is in good condition, it could be worth $150-$200 dollars.
That is a model number, not a serial number. Try a Google search for 'HIGGINS AIR RIFLE' and look for another gun to pull parts off of. ------------------------------------------- This is a Crosman model 400 made for Sears using the JC Higgins name. You can try the link below to locate someone who repairs outdated Crosman rifles. When the Web page opens click on "Find a Service Center" it will guide you to a repair center. ( hopefully)
it might also be a marlin, but try any local gun show
100-400 USD depending on condition.
The price of a house in 1908 varied, but a six room new house could be bought for $735 from Sears and Roebuck. Sears and Roebuck also sold a nine room concrete house for $1,995.
Sometime between ABOUT 1955 and 1980. Wish we could be more specific, but your High Standard Sentinel revolver (made for Sears) has not been catalogued, and that is not the serial number- that is the model number used by Sears.
A Sears and Roebuck firearm called the Gladiator Field Grade side by side manufactured by Meriden Firearms could sell at auction for up to $250. If there is a maker's mark or a model number stamped on the barrel, the price will be more than if there is nothing stamped.
I happen to believe that your sears model 460 could have been made by marlin.The marlin model 56 should be your sears model 460.
Made for Sears Roebuck by Stevens. There may be a model number on the right side of the receiver (most likely 5000, 5100, or 311) or a Sears product number on the barrel (101.6?) which could give an approximate date.
Your J C Higgins model 20 shotgun was made for Sears roebuck and Co.by the High Standard firearms company.The High standard model 200 and your firearm are one and the same firearm.The High Standard model 200 was a part of a Promotional package beginning in 1971.It could be bought as a package with a zippered gun case,A plastic trigger lock,and G-96 gun lubricant.A model 200 high standard shotgun having between 60%-90% of its original finish remaining,will bring between 90-125 dollars.
depends on wich model 583 house brand code J C Higgins/High standard these are very good guns they are worth 100 to150 bucks once again depending on model the model 25 has the highest value Those with 101 vendor code Savage Stevens worth about half of High standard models They were of lessor quality and were not as well made .The Stevens model 87 was sold in huge numbers under various names where the 583 was exclusive product of Sears and were manufactured by high Standard who was owned By Sears and the production of these gun was limited to what sears sold. These gun could not be had from any body els but Sears.
Your rifle is a Marlin Model 81. Value could range from $50-$145, depending on condition. Most are around $100 or so. Accurate reliable hunting grade rifle.
Sears was headquartered in Chicago, but Laurona is in Eibar, Spain. Their double barrels list all the way from $150 for a Model 67 in 60% to $5000 for a Model 802 Eagle in 100% new condition, so more information is required to determine the value. I doubt if a shotgun sold through Sears will be one of the top grades, but it could still be worth several hundred dollars.
Sears never made a gun they had them made by some one else. it could be a spring field and a JC Higgins. and winchester. the value sholud be from 100 to 150 depending on the quaity. It's a Winchester 1200 Field Grade with the Sears name on it. Valued as much as $200 as a Winchester in 100% condition. With the Sears name in good used condition, maybe $100-$125. PS. Springfield and JC Higgins didn't make guns either. Just names used by other makers.
By mail. Sears Roebuck and Co. Published a catalog each year, with everything form clothing to jewelry to tools to furniture to medicine to food to guns to... well, you name it, if it existed, Sears sold it. People ordered by mail, and Sears mailed or shipped their products back to them. Sort of like Amazon without the computer. By the way, check your library and see if they can get you a copy of the Sears 1898 catalog. It has been reprinted in a hardcover version- fascinating to look at what you could buy.
I could take the time to look this model number up in the cross reference, determine the actual manufacturer, then look up that manufacturer's model to see what kind of action it has, and then give a range of values. But you can just go to Walmart or a sporting goods store and find a similar utility shotgun. Figure your used gun is worth about half as much in usable condition and possibly 3/4 as much if it is in nearly-new condition.
Sears' main supplier appears to have been Capitol Saddlery, but the store also got saddles from the Wofford Saddle Company of Gainesville Georgia, and a few of the J.C Higgins brand made by the Bone Allen Company. There very well could have been other , but many of the saddles were not stamped with a makers name, just the Sears name and a model number.
The JC Higgins bolt action shotgun had many "models" they just changed the last digits: 583.xx. This shotgun was actually sold back in the 1950's by Sears. The Sears company itself actually made the shotgun and then sold it in its stores. The name of the company was Sears Roebuck, but Sears actually bought out a company called High Standard Fire Arms to manufacture the gun. In the 1980's and 1990's there was a recall of the shotgun because the bolt on the gun was deemed dangerous because the screw that held the bolt in place became loose after discharge and could eject itself at the person pulling the trigger. From what I've seen on most auction sites, this shotgun in prestine condition has sold for upto $ 150, and in good or normal wear and tear condition it has sold for as little as $20-40 .
Mercantilism lead to the catalog sales book. People that did not find what they wanted in the mercantile store, could order it out of a catalog. The first such catalog of this type was printed by the Sears Roebuck Company.
A Sears Model 300 Winchester Mag rifle could actually be worth several thousand dollars. A rifle in very good condition can sell for up $3,500.
no its broken
I have the original owners manual and the jig saw along with an older saw. I could scan it if you want and email it. Bob
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.
