I was recently given a Ithaca side by side shotgun with the serial # 217114. Other markings include: 711, PATD, LLH and a bird dog on point (both sides). Can anyone provide any information on the shotgun (year, model and value).
I've got one with the serial about 30,000 higher and had finally decided a few years ago that it is a Flues model. Now that I have read one of your contributer's message I might just look on the water table for a grade stamp. The value of this keeps climbing. Wouldn't think of selling mine! It is my first and is a beauty in 20G.
A Fluesie! I've got one too! a good one, 2067xx, a 1911, 12 Ga, good++ shape, with solid steel barrels. They're well known for their balance and handling, perhaps onea "THE BEST" balanced and handeling ever made (maybe). I still use mine and the balance sure does put current shotguns to shame - their real nice to handle in the field. I like that 6-$900, but if ya throw out an offer like that a WHOLE lot are going to pop up outa the woodwork. About the only problem is they were/still are a good gun, lots made and LOTS still in service... $900, i'd be tempted, I got a good en, make an offer...
See, there's three of em right here, I think i'm just gonna keep mine in good shape and service till she's 100 years old. I think as they prove to give full Century of service they'll start getting the respect (and price) they deserve. They are a GOOD, maybe GREAT shotgun!
