your shotgun with that serial# probably makes it a 1909 1910 one of the first made. here is the code.
f=1
I=2
T=3
C=4
H=5
B=6
U=7
R=8
g=9 (fitchburg is the town where Ivers were produced)
so you have the 1297 th one made. I would not take less than 200 for it with that serial number.

If the serial number is all letters then it was made approximately 1940-1956. Guns from 1909-1919 were all numbers in the serial number. Depending on condition, typical value is from $75.00 to $175.00. You may get a bit more depending on where you are and how badly someone wants it if it's in top shape. It would be worth a bit more if it were a less common gauge like the .410.

You can't narrow it down to an exact date but it was made between 1909 to the early 1920's. Value all depends on condition of gun and the gauge. 12 gauge is the most common. Where I am, for a typical average condition 12 gauge, one would have a hard time getting $125.00-$150.00. It will bring more if in excellent condition but still only around the $200.00 mark. One that has never been fired will bring a bit more but those are rare. If the gun was a smaller gauge, like .410 or 28 gauge, it would bring higher prices.

I have a 410 guage Iver Johnson. It has Champion, Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle works stamped on the side, and it is serial number GIXC. I would classify it as being in good to very good condition. Can you tell me what it might be worth.

Guns with letters for the serial numbers were most likely made in the late 30's and 40's. A .410 closer to the "very good" side of condition will bring around $175.00-$200.00. Closer to the "good side of condition will be around $150.00. If you have an excellent example with all case colors it should bring $200.0-$300.00, closer to $300.00 if mint. Of course where you are located could have an impact on price as well as how badly someone wants one in given condition for whatever gun is being sold.

It will be a full choke barrel and the gun was made betewwn 1930--1939. Value will be affected to a degree by where you are and condition of gun. Right now where I am, a 16 gauge in average condition will only bring $75.00-$100.00. Price will climb some as the condition improves with like new, unfired guns bringing the most.

Should be between 1930 to 1940. .410's usually fetch more money. However, condition is everything. As we don't know the condition, it could be anywhere from $75.00 for a rough one to as high as maaaaaybe $300.00 for one like new. Average condition would be around $150.00.

as with all guns the price is determined by the overall condition, inside and out.

Thanks "two old dogs". I've had it for 35 yrs it was given to me by my grandfather (born in 1908). It was his older brother's gun. I'v cleaned it up to give to one of my sons. Please allow me to ask a couple more questions?

When it says "12ga choke bore" what is that compared to full choke? And "barrel and lug forged in one"?

Your Champion Model likely has a full choke which was standard.

Barrel and lug forged in one indicates one piece construction of the barrel and locking lug area rather than a mono-bloc system where the barrel was threaded or brazed into a separate forged and machined breech section containing the locking lug .

Hey!
I just inherited my great grandfathers Iver Johnson Champion serial # 52540 C it says C a bit crooked and not right after the serial, so i'm wondering if the C has something to do with the serial?

The "C" is a suffix to the serial number. Your shotgun was made in the period 1917-1921. There are no records to give a more exact date.
