The H&R Topper is valued at;
Exc. Cond: $100.00 USD
V.G. Cond: $80.00 USD
Good Cond: $60.00 USD
Hope this helps some,
The serial number "Guest" listed is too high to denote an H&R single barrel shotgun made in 1901.
My grandfather's 16 ga. H&R has a serial in the 12000 range and it was made around 1915.
I'd say your gun was most likely made in the 30's.
Furthermore, it is not a Topper.
The Topper name wasn't applied to H&R shotguns until 1943, with the introduction of the model 48.
Considering that there are apparently no letters that preceed the numbers in your H&R's serial number, it is safe to say the gun was made before 1939.
Considering condition, kcbuck is pretty "on" with his listed values.
If the gun is in very good ("new" ) condition, it may be worth a little more.
Do some more research and verify the model and approximate year of manufacture. That will help you assess the value better.
I have a 32 caliber 7 shot Harrington & Richardson...
