Ithaca absorbed several older companies and would have acquired their patents, so the 1880 date probably refers to a patent previously held by Syracuse Arms, Lefever Arms, Union Fire Arms, or Wilkes-Barre Gun Company.

Which barrel do you fire first in a double barrel shotgun?

Usually you fire the right barrel first. It's choke is normally a little open giving a wider spread of shot. You fire the second barrel which is normally a tighter choke at a target farther away. This tighter spread will be concentrated but spread because of the long range assuring more pellets hitting the target. Firing the right barrel at a greater range might have the target escape by having the shot pass by without hitting it because the pellets are spread too far apart.

What is the value of a Marlin S double barrel breakdown shotgun made in the 1800s?

Marlin's first shotgun was a pump action, made in 1898. Marlin never made a double barrel shotgun in their entire history. However, Marlin did own the LC Smith shotgun company after it went bankrupt in 1945. That made them technically a "Marlin" product. If your gun is a 1800's double barrel, it is not a Marlin. Marlin did make the Model 90 over/under, but it was not in the 1800's. Please list ALL markings on the shotgun so we can properly identify it.

What is the value of an Ithaca double barrel shotgun serial 17548 patented Apr 10 1888 May 22 1888 March 15 1889 in poor condition?

This firearm, manufactured in 1892, is refered to as a Crass Model after its designer. Although this was advertised as Ithacas first hammerless shotgun they were also made, I believe, in an exposed hammer model which can affect the value. They were made in many different grades and guages which can also have a major affect on value. A 12 guage field grade hammerless gun, probably the most common, in poor condition would probably bring only about $300 bucks and that assumes that it is in working condition.
