I have what I believe is a NID, S# S 457666. The stock, forend and reciever have been beautifully restored. The stock has been shortened slightly. 26" unrefinished M/F barrels. Based on This info, what would be a fair value?
Thank you!!

Some good photos of the firearm, along with LOP and Gauge, and a decent photo of the opening lever with the barrels closed would help. Also, any special engraving on the receive, and quality of the wood and checkering would be beneficial. The NID was the last of the doubles made by Ithaca and were excellent guns, but on used guns, physical condition = value.

Welcome to SGW ! ! {hs#

Due to the stock alteration and refinishing (no matter how well done), it no longer has the collector value most attribute to examples - IMO making it ( a handsome) shooter value @ $400 (+/-).

It is a 16 ga and the LOP appears to be normal. 13.5"

If your buttstock measurement is to the rear edge of the recoil pad, then the stock was shortened to allow the same LOP with the pad as it was with the issue BP.

The measurement is to the end of thd recoil pad. Based on the info, what would be fair value?

The butt stock is an after-market replacement. Doesn't look anything like a 1930 vintage NID Field Grade Stock.

For larger bores, 12- or 16-gauge, I'd be very suspect of 26-inch barrels choke marked modified (2) and full (4). They may well have started life at 28-inch or 30-inch and have been cut. Have the barrels been measured with a bore mic to determin what the chokes actually are?

Looks like a three to four hundred dollar gun to me.

Excellent information. I will measure the bores. They are marked 2 and 4.

A normal NID stock had a 14" LOP to a factory buttplate (not a rubber butt plate). Also, be aware that 16 ga, NIDs were chambered for 2 9/16" shells until approx. WWII. At that point, they chambered them for the modern 2 3/4" shells.

Both these will decrease value.

Ithaca Gun Co. began listing their 16-gauges as being chambered for 2 3/4 inch shells in their 1934 catalog.

My date of change may have been off, but a 1930 16 ga. gun is still a 2 9/16" chamber as standard.
