    Hello,

    I have a Iver Johnson 12 GA. side by side double barrel shotgun
    the wood is in pretty good shape and the bluing on the barrels are about 85%

    it has a dog marking on the side of the gun where the shells go in
    it is a Hercules model

    what is this model worth

Some of these double barrel shotguns have been seen with Canadian marking, these were most likely shipped to Canada and then marked as there is no evidence that Iver Johnson’s Arms & Cycle Works ever had a manufacturing factory in Canada. It has been reported that a special run of the Hercules double gun was manufactured for Montgomery Wards & Co. in the 1930’s Marked “WESTERN FIELD MODEL 53”.
