The Western Field Model 72 is a variant of the Mossberg Model 472.
None of my references list a Montgomery Centennial Model.
Value for the Standard Model 472 would range from $100 to $250 depending on mechanical condition and remaining original wood and metal finish. A collector might pay a premium for the Centennial Model if you can find him.
Your 30/30 is one of 2000 made for Montgomery Wards in 1972 for their 100 year anniversary. I own #0748. What is the s/number of yours? I would love to hear from anyone else who owns one of these rifles.
