I was back and forth on this - a bit newer than I normally look for but the SN# "spoke" to me....  circa 1953 with two 53s and a 12 in the string:

For $357 OTD, I couldn't pass.... 75-80%.

Ronald, nice gun.  It looks just like the one my Dad bought for me in 1959.

Congrats... That is a very nice clean Model 12, and you got it for a very reasonable price as well.

My first gun was a Model 12, 1948 vintage, sixteen gauge. Last shotgun added to the collection is a 1938 16 gauge WS-2 solid rib skeet gun! My great grandpa started all of this for us in 1931 when he bought each of his two sons Model 12's in sixteen gauge. Great choice in my book!
