I don't have my references in front of me right now to look up the original date of the Lefever company, but I believe it was early enough to have made some of the first breech-loading shotguns. However, the Nitro Special was not made until the 1930's. It was made by Ithaca Gun Co after it purchased the LeFever assets, including the name. While it is considered a better gun than many "utility grade" doubles, it will only bring $500-$600 in top condition. The "real" LeFevers go quite a bit higher.
