Re: New White Powder Wonder 12ga single shot
as far as this shotgun goes it would be easier to provide better pictures of this shotgun because i do not know of any web site or catalog that is going to show all the different meriden, cresent or stevens models. the only clear thing i can see in the pictures provided is the removable hinge pin and retaining screw, which is unlike those used by iver johnson, cresent or stevens
to any one interested,
iver johnson seem to have only sold sears one batch of single barrel shotguns and revolvers in 1900/1901. it seems sears, after signing a franchise agreement with iver johnson sears, roebuck & co. sold iver johnson fireams at a discounted price. in 1904 iver johnson's arms & cycle works sued sears, roebuck & co. for violation of the franchise agreement. iver johnson won the suit and the only iver johnson firearms sears sold after that date was what they had in inventory. 1904 was the end of the very short sears iver johnson association.
