Might find this Gunbroker Auction of interest, Winchester Model 12 skeet gun, 28 gauge:

Yes, it's my old shotgun. Haven't used it much in the past 20 years. Before that, I'd take it on an occasional pheasant or quail hunt. It's been mine for 50 years. Time for it to belong to someone else.

Like you I don't shoot shotguns much anymore.   Got rid of my old
duck hunting shotguns 10 years ago.   

Only 2 left now, a Mossberg 500 for home defense and a Browning
Superposed for Trap shooting.

Yours is a nice gun, bet it sells fast.

Whoever put the can on it ruined the guns value. I know it was the norm back in the day. It will be a fine hunting gun and nothing beats the 28 ga. But to a collector it is worthless.

That seems to have changed. Anymore, even the ones with the Cutts Compensator are going for a couple of thousand...

I still do a fair bit of pheasant and chukar hunting, in fact I'm looking forward to doing more and more upland bird hunting as I gradually back away from the more arduous big game hunts like elk, mule deer & bear.

It's an awful lot of fun to work with the dog & take pheasant & chukar! Plus, they're easier to carry out. Those danged chukar though, they do like to inhabit some tough country. A fellow can get quite the workout, just chasing them around.

But, have sold one old shotgun recently, and this 28 ga is up for sale now. Where I hunt, lead shot is illegal, even for upland game. And I'm afraid I just might ruin the barrels of these nice old shotguns if I ran steel shot through them - so they've become useless to me, despite being good guns.

Interesting gun. Model 12s in 28 gauge have to be rare, never seen one.

FWIW, there's a similar on on gun broker, also with the Cutts that has a considerably higher asking price than yours. Good luck with your auction, I hope the right collector buys it.

Beautiful shotgun Guy.
Back in the '50s if you didn't have a Cutts on your shotgun you weren't a skeet shooter.
I have a model 97 Winchester Black Diamond Trap (not near as nice as yours)that has a Weaver choke device from back in the day.
Don't know what I would do with that little shotgun but sure wish I could afford it.

Very nice! My first shotgun when I was 13 was an Remington 1148 in 28 gauge
with a cuts compensator on it.

I would love to replace that with a 28 gauge just because!
