The Montgomery Wards Western Field model 46C was made for them buy Mossberg and sons.The Mossberg model 42A and your rifle are one and the same.Mossberg made the model 42A from 1937-1938.
It's pretty old. And I'll give you 100 bucks for it.
No known published sn data.
Made 1937-1938,The age would be 75-76 years old.

The model 87 was made for Montgomry Ward by Savage Stevens from 1938-1945.
Should be a version of the Marlin 336. Wards sold the Marlin under the Western Field brand name through the 1960's until they switched to Mossberg in 1971.I've found that the Western Field Model 33A was made by Noble.
Your western field model 32 is actually a mossberg model 20 or model 21.The mossberg model 20,21 was made by mossberg between the years 1933-1938,for the montgomery wards stores(western field brand name).
All of the Wards SB model shotguns in my cross reference have a number with the letters. Please check your model number closely, and repost your question.
My father used a Wards Western Field 410 gauge repeater as a young man. The gun I believe is approximately 70-80 years old. If you have a patent number you can contact the pantent office and they should be able to tell you when the shotgun was first produced.
