I have a Stevens break action .410 from my mother's estate.
I looking for help to identify the model number, find when it was made and its approximate value.
The butt pad is melted on one end, pattern looks as if it was set down on a hot grill or maybe set down on something like that in some kind of solvent.
On the left side it reads
J Stevens Arms Company
Chickopee Falls, Mass. USA
On the right
Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. & FGN.
The barrel is 26"
The butt pad is plastic and has a big "S" with Stevens written along inside it.
There are no other markings that I can find.
