Here is one of my guns I inherited from my grandfather’s collection and am having trouble finding manufacturer date and value. Here is what I know so far, as far as I can tell it was made before 1948 but the date information I have found is all over the place. I think it was manufactured between 1931 and 1948 but not positive since markings are kind of confusing. I will post pictures of markings I have used to try to get information, if any others are needed please let me know. It has Stevens on one side with a pointer engraved on it, the opposing side has J. Stevens Arms Company Chicopee Falls, Mass U.S.A. also has a 5000 on the lower left on same side. On the bottom next to where it pivots it has a 22 inside a circle, on the top of the barrels it has selected proof steel and on the opposing barrel proof tested 12 gauge 2 3/4 inch chamber. It has checkered walnut stocks with much of the case hardening remaining, blued barrels and a clean bright smooth bore. Any information I can receive with this shotgun will be greatly appreciated, I am trying to date and put a value to my grandfather’s extensive collection that I now own. Thank you in advance

That is a pretty shotgun. I hope you hang onto it, because it is obvious by it's condition that your grandfather cared about that shotgun. The cash value will never equal it's true value to you.
