Winchester Model 21 Value Assessment

Help needed from you Model 21 experts please!

I have just inherited a 1933 Winchester Model 21 12 GA 28" Barrel Serial # 1474. It looks as if it is all origional and in very good condition. Stored in a thick leather case, my great grandfather purchased it new and has passed it down. My father didn't know much about it, so I'm turning to you guys!

What do you think? Here are some Pictures, I'll post better tomorrow.

I would like to see close ups with more light. How does the condition of yours compare with the large pics in this ad?

Yes, the condition is very similar to the one listed in the link. There are really no blemishes at all. Still working on getting the best pictures, hopefully these will suffice. Does the low serial number increase the value at all?

No expert on these, but....

The early field grade guns like this do not command the same prices as the later, single trigger Custom Shop 21s.

However, any 21 in near new condition these days brings something north of $5K, oft more.

HTH....
