"Uncle Dan" Lefever started making shotguns in Syracuse, NY, in 1885. In 1916 the company was sold to Ithaca, but the Lefever product line was continued until 1948. Approximately 72,000 guns were produced before the Ithaca takeover, so yours should be one of the last "real" Lefevers. I don't know how "fairly good shape" translates to an NRA condition, but if it is fully functional, may have minor parts replaced or repaired, and has 80% or the original finish on all wood and metal parts, it would be NRA Good. The Blue Book value for a DS grade in 80% condition is $850. There is a 50% premium for the 16 gauge and you can add another 10% if it has a single selective trigger.

I have been collecting Lefevers and DM Lefevers for 30 years- If you would like some fair and honest advise I am more than happy to any questions or give you an honest appriasal of your Lefever shotgun- weather it is a Nichols Lefever, Barber Lefever, Dangerfield Lefever, Ellis Lefever, or Lefever Arms Company, or the DM Lefever's feel free to give me a call at 419-450-2454 Paul
