I got this shotgun from my grandfather in 91 after he passed. I just want to know what it's worth.

The following info is on the barrel,
PROOF TESTED-16 GA. MOD.
2 3/4 CHAMBER
J.C. HIGGINS-MODEL 583.11
SEARS ROEBUCK AND CO
There is also a padded leater thing on the but of the shotgun. It has shoe string through the eyelets and a faded circle with the letters NORKA in the middle.

Any info would be nice. Thanks.

Thanks for the info. But what do you mean by "roll date"?

It's kind of unclear to me as to whether it's the date of manufacture (likely) or the date it was stamped for Sears (less likely)
