model 12 questions

I have a pump shotgun made by winchester,marked "win.12 12ga" on the barrel.On the left side of the receiver is written is script writing "Specialty Grade"the grade is written below the Specialty.It is in gold leaf,and it also has a squirrel inside a large circle with some swirls covering almost the entire side.There is gold leaf on top of the barrel,and on the right side is the same type of scroll work,with a rabbit located within the circle.
Serial number is 1034307.
The magazine is attached to the barrel with a clamping type of piece that is attached with a screw that is located between the magazine and barrel.It has a non vented barrel with a small gold bead front sight.
The stamping of the Win 12 12ga is rather crude.
My father received this as a gift 50 years ago,and was told it was custom made.
I have not been able to find the gold scroll work design in any books.

Does any one know what this is,when it was made,and what it may be worth ?

A picture is worth a thousand words . . .
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
