Need help with a LC Smith ID and value

I bought a LC Smith with side by side Hunter Arms damacsus barrel shotgun. It has hammers and a 32" barrel The butt has a hard rubber plate with an image of a lab with a pheasant in it's mouth It is a six digit serial number with an "F" underneath it. I'm assuming its a field grade. I believe it was manufactured in 1908. The gun is in great condition. Bore is like glass and stock has very little marks if any.
I am looking for anyone with information on LC Smith's and what the value on this gun may be.

Re: Need help with a LC Smith ID and value

I looked at the LC Smith website prior to posting and got the 1908/9 manufacture date. Other than that I went on a few different sites looking for value but it was difficult to locate too many hammer models. Most of the ones I saw were all hammerless models. From what I'm seeing the gun would be valued between $1300-$1500. I saw what appeared to be an identical or close to it gun that was roached out and was still selling for $1000. I figure if I put mine up for sale I'll take the $1000 and be content it's fair for me and the buyer.
My main concern was that the LC Smiths can be difficult to value and I have the luck that I'd sell it and find later it was a rare model due to a small detail that I didn't know to look for. That was my reasoning for wanting a collector to put hands on and tell me everything he knows. Knowledge can be a double edged sword. The gun is beautiful but it will be going in the classifieds in the near future.

Re: Need help with a LC Smith ID and value

I did some more digging in the LC site and got some advice and think I have it narrowed down. It appears the gun is in the middle of my estimate but so be it, it's still a beautiful old shotgun. Its now in the classified section w/ pics looking for a new home for a collector or a bird hunter that can load for it.
