Hey new to the site had a quick question. I have a 1928 Ithaca nitro special 410 in fairly good shape. Wood is all original with correct cap and but plate and sharp checkering. Barrels appear to have original blue but receiver has been blued. Game scene and all lettering on gun very clear. Gun also is functional. What is a real world value to expect for sale? Thanks in advance

If the checkering is "sharp" someone has gone over it. Lefever Nitro Special checkering was pretty bleak flat-topped scratching.

Sharp may have been bad terminology to use. What I meant is it isn't worn smooth or gone such as when it's been sanded. I appreciate the clarification.

A .410 would command a premium over a Nitro Special in the same condition in one of the other gauges. Don't know how much, though.

Condition is everything. Worn bluing or case colors, or scratches in the stock negatively affect value. But a .410 Nitro Special is a good, basic gun as long as the opening lever is right of center.
