Congradulations on the great find. I have collected and shot this model for decades. First your rifle is actually a shotgun. Next the 16 guages were quite popular. The Winchester model 12's were known a the PERFECT REPEATER. The gun were machined from solid billets of steel. No plastic, investment castings, MIM parts, or stamped tin parts. The number 23 is just an assembly number, just about all models had these stampings. Lastly these are desireable guns IF they are left in original condition. ANY alterations severely reduces the value. How about some pictures to share.
