It was made by Iver Johnson after their Champion Model for Montgomery Ward
Probably isn't one if it was manufactured before 1969. I think the Champion was still manufactured into the 1970s. If so, the last ones were required to have a serial number clearly marked on the receiver.
The rough value of an Iver Johnson 410 shotgun serial number 001 is about $300. However, this will depend on the condition of the shotgun.
I bought a champion singel shot 410 about 8 years agon for $129. It does not have a serial number on it. The gun is old but I don't know how old. No cracks in the wood.
My great-grandmother gave me her's and she purchased her's in 1949.
Type your answer here... Remove the two screws on the butt and you will find a single screw inside that holds the stock on. Remove the screw and the stock can be removed revealing serial number on top.
We cant verify the SD108 model number, however: The "Hercules" was the trade name used by the Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works on shotguns made for the Montgomery Ward Co. Of Chicago. The "Hercules" made for Wards was a copy of the Iver Johnson "Champion" model which is a single shot shotgun with exposed hammer. They were made between 1909 and 1956.
More than likely, you have a Champion Model of an Iver Johnson shotgun. The Champion was made in a few different grades from about 1909-1973- quite a run. Standard model in good condition about $150, others higher. These were durable, well made guns- just not really high priced.
Submit the serial number to the company, or ask the expert at a local gunshop.
CHeck the barrel and receiver.
Check the frame and barrel

Depends on model and when it was made. I have a Stevens 84-C that has no SN on it.
this site seldom has an answer-and chances your question-note above
The FBUX letters on an Iver Johnson shotgun is the serial number. Iver Johnson, in the later years of production, used the word "Fitchburg" and assigned a number for each letter as follows: F=1, I=2, T=3, C=4, H=5, B=6, U=7, R=8, G=9, and the "X" was for 0. Therefore, the serial number is 1670.
That really depends on the condition. Take it to a gunsmith or appraiser or go to auctionarms.com to get an idea of what they are selling for.
Check the top of the receiver and under the forearm.
