Now wait just a minute.
J.C. Higgins was an earlier Sears sporting goods trademark and may not be the same basic gun as a Ted Williams. The Gun Digests I have are not 100% reliable on small details, there may have been some Winchester made JCH rifles in the early 60s, right after Winchester changed the design, but there were a bunch on Mauser, Sako, and HVA actions, too. I see nothing like a Savage.
Best get the rifle to somebody knowledgeable, or post a picture.
