Interesting shotgun. The patent date is the giveaway. The shotgun was actually made by the Crescent Firearms Company which was the largest shotgun manufacturer in the US at the time. It was absorbed by HD Folsom, a huge firearm importer/distributor, and continued making shotguns for that firm under many different brand names until Folsom was absorbed by Stevens c.1930. I do not know what hardware store or mail-order store used the GET THERE brand name. Vorisek's "Shotgun Markings" attributes that patent date to WH Davenport. His entry for GET THERE indicates "unknown manufacturer" so I guess this date was not marked on the example he examined. Unfortunately, Joe passed away on Christmas Day, 2005, and I do not know what will happen to his documentation.
I bought the same shotgun, serial number in the 91000s, for 50 dollars. Ones in good condition can go for 80 dollars. Unless, it is in perfect condition, 80 dollars is the max value.
