    Numrich's cross reference chart list two guns for the Sears 200. One is the Winchester 1200, the other gun listed is the Mossberg G-4, I have never been able to locate a Mossberg G-4 so I have always assumed that was an error. So off the top of my head I would say your Sears 200 was a Winchester Model 1200. Don't have the serial number listing for the 1200 { and even if there was a listing, there is no guarantee that Winchester used the same serial number sequence for their Store Brand guns }, but it was introduced in 1964, your father brought it used in 1975, so it was made in that 11 year time period. To meet the price guidelines for Sears retail stores the manufactures had to take shortcuts, usually in the form of cheaper wood and less detail to finish. Store brands will retail for 15 to 20 per-cent less that the same gun with the parent manufactures name roll marked on it. Last years Blue Book list the 1200 in 100% condition at $200 down to $90 in poor. That's for a Winchester Model 1200, a Sears Model 200 will be valued less. It is still a good solid gun. Hope that helps.
