I have a Winchester Model 1897 12 gauge shotgun with a 30 inch

Resolved Question:

I have a Winchester Model 1897 12 gauge shotgun with a 30 inch full choke barrel that was, according to the serial number (582441), manufactured in 1914. It is the common field model with no hand checkering. It appears to be quite worn. The bluing is either gone or has turned brown or black. I have not shot it. It would best used to hang on the wall. Does it have any value, and if so, who should I contact?
