This model is actually a "western shotgun" made by LC Smith and the grade of shotgun is a "field grade model". These serial number is ***** and you are correct in that this is a 1906 manufacture date and was available in 10, 12, and 16 gauge.

Some LC Smith models are very scarce and valuable but this isn't on of those rare guns that only had a few made that year or in a fine quality grade. Given an excellent condition as you say and without seeing it this would value in the $650 range.
