What do I have? I see a model 12 12 ga skeet. It has a two pin milled Duck bill rib,Cutts gun, proof marks not covered up. barrel is 26" to where compensator body is.(where choke would screw to)

Is this a factory Cutts,, or is is a WS1 barrel that at some point in time a Cutts was added??

Serial number dates gun to 1948.. I blotched serial numbers last couple digits..
serial # is 11577XX

It began life as a factory “Skeet” Model 12. Then for some reason someone decided to add the Cutts, perhaps to have choices with chokes. This move has probably diminished the value of the gun by 50% or even more. Remember that’s Cutts compensators were very popular in the 1950s, 60s and even the 1970s.
