How can you find the model number and the year of manufacture and the value of a 12 gauge Ithaca side-by-side serial 234446?
Manufactured in 1913; model should be a Flues or NIG (New Ithaca Gun), as either could have had that serial number. Value depends on condition and how badly someone wants to buy it. 12 GA is more common than 16 or 20, so is worth less. Ballpark is probably in the $350 range. Watch gunbroker.com for a little while and see what similar guns are bringing at auction.
depends on the year and manufacture date of your gun . also do all the parts match by serial Number you should find the serial Number on side of the receiver (on newer Ithaca) older style Ithaca the serial Number will be on the Recevier (Between the magazine tube and barrel) then look up WWW.SURPLUSRIFLEFORUM.COM on their site look up on their Search engine type in "ITHACA 37 DOM" there you'll find the serial list…
Ithaca made 382,000 of these between 1942 and 1945, but I don't know of a source for narrowing it down farther than that. Not sure about the serial number, as Ithaca was assigned serial numbers of 7 digits, beginning with 1,208,674 and ending with 2,693,613, but not sequential. Ithaca was awarded the only "E" for excellence in manufacture of these pistols of the 3 companies that made them for the military.
