    S.C.H.D. is South Carolina Highway Dept. Many Vietnam 77Es ended up in S.C. after the war. It is debatable whether the ever actually went overseas or were released from US Army arsenal directly to S.C.

    Have seen one sell on auction for somewhere in $1500 range, but dont believe it was marked SCHD. Seen em at SC gun shows for $500-$1k.
    Not many out there, but since it is not a Winchester, not worth as much.

    A good source of information on the military Stevens 77E, is Eric H. Archer’s article in the “Gun Collectors Digest, 5th Edition” and Canfield’s “Combat Shotgun” book is also very good.

    During 1967 & 68 I was a Small Arms Repairman in Viet Nam, and the military Stevens Model 77E was the most common shotgun we worked on. Its’ great failing was the attachment of the Stock to the Trigger Guard, which was made of a non-steel alloy (aluminum I suppose) was easily broken, and this Trigger Guard was not available as a repair part (at that time). Interestingly the military 77E had more parts in common with the Savage Model 30 than it did with the civilian version of the Stevens 77E.

    I had a conversation with a civilian member to the Army Material Command concerning maintenance of US military shotguns; part of this covered the 77E. They were very unhappy that the Stevens 77E was being issued to US troops (originally intended just for the VN police and the ARVN MPs). It was felt that this shotgun was just not robust enough for combat use. If I remember correctly, he used the word “junk”. But for recreational rabbit or bird hunting it will do just fine.

    Again, if I remember correctly, I read on another forum (one of the Enfield forums) that some NVA captured US Military Stevens Model 77Es were imported into Australiaicon and Canadaicon. The comment was also made of what poor condition they were in.
