Hello, thank you for allowing me to ask a question on your forum. My question is this serial# is on the lower part where it should be but there is no # on the upper housing.. There is no signs of any modification. Looks factory. Manufacture date per Serial # shows 1899. So, in the beginning was there no # put on the upper housing? Thank you very much for your time and effort. My dad and uncle bought this shotgun in the late forties for $50 dollars.

Hello Mike,

Is your Model 1897 shotgun a Take Down, or a Solid frame?  Only the Take Down variation had the serial number marked in two locations.  What is the serial number?

Yes you did… can you send me clear pictures of the gun, specifically the bottom of the receiver frame and Take Down extension?
