The Ithaca Gun Co manufactured the Lefever single barrel shotguns under the Lefever Arms Co. name after it acquired the company in 1916. This model was made between 1927 and 1942; the serial number indicates yours was made in 1928.

Ithaca Guns manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special after it acquired Lefever Arms in 1916. This model was made between 1921 and 1947; the serial number indicates yours was made in 1924.
This was apparently prior to the acquisition of Lefever by Ithaca, since it appears that the first Ithaca Lefever serial numbers contain 6 digits (Lefever Nitro Special - 1921)
The shotguns were manufactured by Ithaca from 1921 through 1947. Yours was manufactured in 1928.
In order to determine the age of Lefever shotgun, the serial number must be known. However, Lefever shotguns were only made and distributed between 1885-1916.
