There was no specific date, you could order them either way for many years, damascus was usually the more expensive of the two. I'm quite sure though that any Lefevers made by Ithaca had "steel" barrels (although there probably were some Lefever made guns left over and sold by Ithaca). Ithaca acquired Lefever something around 1916.

That is impossible to determine without more information. It should be a double gun with sidelocks. We need to know exactly how it is marked, including markings between the bottom of the barrels and the frame, what gauge it is, how long the barrels are and how they are choked, and most importantly WHAT CONDITION is it in (case colors, blue, wood, checkering, bores, etc. Send digital pictures.) Lefever shotguns can range from $300 to over $10,000. sales@countrygunsmith.net
