Hello Marlands,

You have researched a couple of older ithaca doubles for me and I enjoy and appreciate your knowledge. I bought another according to the previous owner it is a Flues model 1.

It has lots of engraving all over the frame, mostly all leafy swirls, no dogs or birds, too bad. Anyways serial number is 333715. The water table has the ser # stamped and below it has a 1 and below this is a widely spaced 1 2. Under the barells is ser# and a very faint "flues" each barrel has a 4 and also 13 stamped in it.
What is the grade rating on these?

all is in fair shape Very nice wood, mechanically is very good, crisp and tight. The gun is missing the butt plate, know wher I could find one?

So please again what do I have, when was it made and was $300 too much to pay? Also I picked up a mod 37 ultra light 20ga. Cute little thing what do ya know on these?

Chad, you are always a pleasure to work for, you give such a great amount of detail, it makes my job easier and I do appreciate it. But I'm gonna have to take points off because you failed to mention whether it was a hammer gun or hammerless ;)
Also, I think the former owner was mistaken, he must have meant a Flues Grade One instead of a model 1. The ***** and grade are the 12 and the 1 , I have no clue what the 4 and 13 mean, maybe inspector marks?

It looks like your Ithaca was born in 1920.

- manufactured in both Flues and NID models, similar to Field Grade

* 12 ga.
Grading 100% 98% 95% 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10%

Add $200 for single trigger

On the 37 are you sure it's simply an ultralight? thereare two other variations with ultra light in their names.. just checking .

- 12 (disc.) or 20 ga., new manufacture features checkered pistol grip (with Sid Bell red grip cap) and forearm, most recent mfg. is in deer configuration, 20 ga. only with 20 or 25 in. smooth bore barrel. New 1996.

Sound like it?

OOPS, on the butt plate, you might want to ask Ron down in the Gunsmithing forum, I wouldn't have a clue other than auction sites.
