Nitro in the name would imply smokeless powder, so the earliest would be shortly after 1900. Could have been as recent as 1945.

It's part of the serial number.

I would say that with the serial number 1321XX,we are looking at your shotgun being made by ithaca(who made the lefever nitro special) in 1924.
About $65-$75, depending on condition. Thee were low $$$ guns made by Crescent, who used about 100 different names. The Nitro Hunter was made for a chain of hardware stores.

The best that I can say is that the Lefever Nitro special was made from 1921-1948.I do not know if the serial numbers to year of production is available in the public domain.
The Ithaca Gun Company acquired Lefever Arms in 1916, and manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special between 1921 and 1947. The serial number on your gun indicates it is an "A Grade" made in 1937.
Seldom exceed 150 USD
