According to the published serial number chronology, put out by Lightner Library back in 1976, your Sterlingworth would be from the 1928-29 time frame. The only way to know for sure would be to order a letter on your gun from the Savage historian. For $40 Graded or $30 Sterlingworth (last prices I've seen quoted) you can get a factory letter on most any Ansley H. Fox shotgun (Philadelphia or Utica) from

John T. Callahan
Arms Historian
P.O. Box 82
Southampton, MA 01073.

The information exists on the factory work-order cards, probably 85+% of which still exist. Send him the complete serial number and a check, and he can do the rest. That would tell you the specifications of the gun when it left the factory.

Usually takes six to eight weeks.
