I have two old shotguns: 1. J Stevens 12 ga double barrel, 5000(?), can't find a serial no, just a 17 in a circle, Jostam recoil pad with two patent dates 1913 and 1927.
2. Harrington & Richardson, 12 ga choke, single barrel , serial no 223472, external hammer.
Can any body date these and estimate value?

The Stevens 5000 was introduced in 1931 or 32. In 1941 the number was changed to 5100 and a few years later became the 311 series. It's value would be less than $200 unless it is in new condition (not refinished). Can't date the H&R except sometime between 1871 and the 1990's. Value is probably about $50 since you can buy a new single-shot for about $90. Both were good utility firearms, but nothing fancy and definitely not rare enough to attract collectors.

I have a Harrington & Richardson single shot 12ga with the serial # A981750 that my dad found in an abandonded house in the early - mid 70's. How old do you think it is?

eh, I found the info from a link on this website, looks like a first run edition in 1940. I guess that makes it worth $.35 more.

Todd, I'm betting the 1915 is the patent date correct, (atleast that's what most have been ).

made capable of working properly, and with decent looks, it'll be in the $250 range , higher or lower depending on region.

Most any of your local gunsmiths should be able to get it firing, if you can't find one locally try the gunsmithing forum, there's two or three 'smiths there that might be able to walk you through the fixin'

I have a single barrell shotgun that the name and numbers are rusted off. After being cleaned up, I could only find a diamond with a G in it. I would like to know what kind of gun it is.

Sarader - Would you believe me if I said you have a rare DIAMOND D shotgun? You expect a bit too much from us as we have no crystal ball. If we could see the gun, we could make a guess, but based on the description given, you get nothing. Sorry.

A clear photo of the action might give us a good idea. Most likely it is a utility gun made by Crescent, Stevens,Iver Johnson, or one of several Belgian firms, distributed by H&D Folsom, and sold by a general merchandise or hardware store.

My, how rude of you guest! Marland and All Hat are giving their best expertise for free. Shame on you.
