CHAMPION 12 gauge shotgun

I have a 12 gauge shotgun with the only markings on it that says "CHAMPION."
There is a serial number of 12244.
It is a single shot with a side, trigger guard release to open the breach.
I am trying to find out when it was made.
I assume it is an Iver Johnson, but it does not have anything on it except "CHAMPION."
Thanks for any help.

Probably a Ivur Johnson model 37 champion. They were produced from 1909-1922. Somewhat rare. Hope that helps.

The number one cause of death in the 20th century. 290,000,000 citizens were first disarmed and then murdered by their own governments. This number does not include those killed in war.
