Hi, I recently inherited a .410 J.c. Higgins shotgun and was trying to determine the value. It is still in the original box, and has never been fired, and I'm pretty sure it was made in 1963.
Any help ascertaining the value would be appreciated,

EDIT: It is a pump action shotgun.

If the gun is marked J.C. Higgins, it was not likely made in 1963. The Higgin's era was over that year with the advent of Ted Williams endorsing Sears' guns. The 1963 Fall and Winter catalog list's the standard (ash-stocked) .410, the Model 21, at $62.95. The Ted Williams model has a walnut stock and a vent rib and lists for $88.50. The standard model is marked SEARS, and the Ted Williams model is marked (as you may have guessed) Ted Williams. The J.C. Higgins guns made for Sears by High Standard carry (mostly) the 583.XXX designation. If your gun has this number then it is a High Standard. If it carries the number 377.701, then it was made by Noble. If it carries a 101.XXX then it was made by stevens.To my knowledge, these are the only companies that made pump shotguns in .410 bore for Sears. So, which one do you have?
