Re: Olympia shotgun
Welcome to the forum Dennis.
Is the marking OLYMPIA or OLYMPIC?
Vorisek's "Shotgun Markings" does not list brand name Olympia, but lists Olympic made by Stevens for Morley & Murphy Hardware of Green Bay Wisconsin, and Olympic Arms made by Iver Johnson for Morley Bros. of Saginaw Michigan.
Regardless, old brand name single barrels are not highly valued, usually less than $100.
If it's an Iver Johnson, those with all numeric serial numbers were made ca 1909-1919.
So it's probably at or near 100 years old, and may have shorter chambers than current ammo, and is best retired.
