Winchester had a lever shot gun with this mdl number, is that the gun you mean?
There is no serial number data for the Company Hopkins and Allen in the private sector available.This firm was in business from 1867-1916.No laws required serial numbers at that time,and those that were marked with a serial number have no records remaining today.If you have a single shot shotgun,these were made from 1887-1902.If the markings say Hopkins and Allen Manufg.Co.Norwich,Conn on the gun then this was made from before 1896.If you have a double barrel shotgun,then these were made from 1902-1916,when they went out of business.
There were model 1887 lever action shotguns made by Winchester ( I have a 12 ga). These are worth in the range of $1200 to $5000 depending on condition. I am not aware of any Model 1886 Winchesters in a shotgun.
Check the receiver and barrel
While your Shotgun says model 1901,It is actually a Winchester model 1887 lever action 10ga shotgun.The model 1901 shotgun which was a strengthened model 1887 starts at serial number 64,856.These 2 models of shotguns had interchanging serial numbers.Your serial number shows that it was made by Winchester in 1891.The value of your shotgun is based on the amount of original finish remaining on the wood and metal in a percentage.If your shotgun has between 10%-50% of its original finish remaining,then its value will be between 675-1,325 dollars.I would like to add that your chamber length should be 2 7/8in in length.
Your Winchester model 1887 lever action shotgun in 10 gauge will bring between 675-1,600 dollars based on it having between 10%-60% of its original finish remaining.The higher the finish percentage the higher the value.The 10 gauge shotgun began at serial number 22148.
Made in 1910.The serial numbers of the model 1901 started where the model 1887 shotgun left off.the serial number start for this model is 64856.It should be noted that some serial numbers were skipped between 1904-1920.Total production was 13,500 shotguns including the serial numbers skipped.My records indicate that your shotgun was made in 1906.
Depends on the condition. Give you an idea 0-1500.
