It says in the top rear of the right barrel:

L.C. Smith 12 ga Field. Fulton NY USA

On the receiver:

fw S 33574
FIELD

I don't see anything else, but I may not know where to look.
I'm new to these shotguns.

Any info greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I don't know much about LC's, but they are definitely collectable and yours looks like 98% or better in your photos. The Fulton models aren't as high dollar as the "originals" and field grade is at the low end of the list, but I would expect it to be valued in excess of $1000. If this link works, it will take you to another message board where you might get more (and better) information

Don't forget to include your pictures.
Hope I don't get banned from this board for sending you elsewhere, but your question has been here quite a while without geting an answer.

Those guys are no help, and are pretty snooty.

I'll not be hanging around that antiquated type format forum anyway. The endless thread setup is terribly annoying. They need to upgrade to at least 1995 technology. :evil:

Man, I hate trying near perfect L.C. Smiths , they are just plain too valuable for a few guys playing on the 'net.

I've got it at 1948 manufacture.

here's what the Bluebook has but on these it can be way off.

STANDARD FIELD GRADE
Grading 100% 98% 95% 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40%
$1,750 $1,500 $1,250 $925 $775 $675 $550 $465 $435
30% 20% 10%
$395 $375 $340

Add 33% for auto ejectors.
Add $200 for SST.

Take a look at this one http://www.gunbroker.com/auction/ViewIt ... m=10478291

AHNH, nope not gonna ban you for that, but next time ,,well you never know.

Roger you might want to ask these guys, http://***********/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=forum;f=1 or just take a look around their site , I guarantee you they are good guys and they are on top of these old high grade guns.

Sorry I couldn't be more confident, but that L.C.Smith is a heck of a gun and I want you to know within a reasonable margin.
