Last year my grandfather past away and left me a Winchester model 1897 12 gauge shotgun. I tracked down the serial number and it was made in 1914. It still works just fine although it shows its age. My grandfather used it for several years to feed his family and it shows. I was wondering if anyone might know the value of this type of gun? Not that it really matters because I wouldn't sell it for anything. Thanks.
P.S. When I took the recoil pad off there was a piece of paper inside the stock. It turned out to be an Arkansas state hunting license from 1943. He paid twenty five cents.
