Re: stevens favorite 25 cal rimfire
You have a Stevens Favorite boys' rifle, one of their most successful, an approximate million made ca 1893-1939. The patent date actually reads April 17.94 . Value depends on condition, and Flayderman lists value range from $250 for Very Good condition to $600 for Excellent. Most have seen hard use, and .25 rimfire ammo is obsolete so you don't have a shooter regardless of condition. There are no serial number records to determine when your particular gun was made.
