Your gun was made for Sears Roebuck in the late 60's/early 70's, most likely by High Standard, and would be worth up to $200, +/-, today, IF it's in excellent original condition - rusty/beatup tomato stakes are worth considerably less, and you don't make mention of it's condition.

The numerical numbers stamped on a Sears Roebuck & Co guns (Eastern Arms, Ranger, J. Higgins, Sears and Ted Williams) are commonly thought of as model numbers. Actually they are catalog numbers and tell who made the gun, the type action, the caliber or gauge and any other features the gun may have. 583 is the code Sears used for guns made by High (Hi) Standard. 583.514 though 583.730 crosses to a Hi Standard Model 20 pump action shotgun.
