I am looking for...

I am looking for a resale price of a Winchester Model 1897 shotgun. The serial number is ***** 215034. It belonged to my father's uncle. I ended up with it after my father's estate was settled.

Expert's Assistant: How can the Gunsmith help you with your firearm? Please tell me everything you can so the Gunsmith can help you best.

I a possible buyer coming over to look at the gun. I would like to know what price range the shotgun would fall in.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Gunsmith should know?

As far as I know the gun has not been fired in over 60 years maybe longer. The gun is very good shape with some pitting on the metal. The matching serial numbers are very pronounced (easy to read).
