I need help identifying my grandfathers single shot Stevens 12g. I have had it for about 40 years. The barrel is 29.5 inches and throws me off everytime I think I find a gun that matches. The only identifying marks are the buttplate which says Stevens, and the serial numbers on the barrel, receiver and forestock, which all match. I have included a couple of photos. The model, relative age, and aproximate value would be appreciated.

Stevens made thousands of these things in the early to mid 1900's. They were utility grade guns meant to be used. Nothing fancy, but they worked, like any other good tool around the farm.
Value is around $100, give or take $20 or so.

It MIGHT be a Model 107, $9.65 in 1939, but they made a number of slightly different singles over the years. Grandpa's is very likely older than that.
