A handy reference guide for those who would like to know when their vintage Ithaca-made gun was made.

Board member Walter Snyder has individual gun details.

That is an older list. The Baker, Crass and Lewis are different than this list shows.
1883 was 1st year of production.

Last Baker was 6549.
Lewis started @ 55000 in 1901.

Walter, is there a site that has your abridged tables from the 2nd printing?

John

Walter has sent a lot of the records he had to the McCracken Research Library at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. They should be offering Ithaca letters soon.

The best serial number chronology is in the Second Edition of Walter's book. No serial number chronology is the be all and end all. Walter has shown us invoices showing guns with serial numbers that by the chronology would be as early as 1927, being shipped in October 1942.
