Value is totally dependent on condition. Is there any case color left on the receiver? Is the "good bluing" original, or a re-blue? What about the wood? "Some rust," especially if there is pitting, can be a real problem. "Condition" to a collector is original appearance, not shootability. What guage? The less common, the more valuable.

Still, a Grade 2 Ithaca double in 12 guage and 10% condition is still booked at $335.00. In 80% (assuming "some rust" means surface only), it is worth $800.00. Take the gun to a reputable gunsmith for an appraisal.

I can not give any information on the value of the gun but I did just acquire a similar gun and I just want to add some information; this was before they "blued" guns they were actually "browned" and my understanding of this is they would let the gun rust to a certain degree and then seal it. However many people who didn't know better sanded the rust off therefor ruining the original finish, I would strongly suggest leaving the finish alone. But as stated the best thing to do would be to take it to a dealer and see if the finish is original and get an approximate value from them. Also just so you're aware this model of gun is a Damascus Twist and if you're unsure what that is just ask, but the main point of this is don't ever shoot the gun as it could explode.

A Grade 5 Crass would be a very rare shotgun. Value could hit $3000 in top condition. Best get a hands-on appraisal by someone knowledgable in the older Ithacas. sales@countrygunsmith.net

Perhaps you mean 1907. In any event, it is the 'Crass' model Ithaca shotgun made in 1902. Value is dependent upon grade and condition. sales@countrygunsmith.net

By your ques I take it that 9943 was on the watertable and that it is the serial numberand it equtes to an Ithaca Crass 1889, as for your 212 number you stated in your ques that would equate to a 12 ga grade 2.

Knows as the 'Crass Model' after designer Frederick Crass. The Crass Model was only made from 1888 to 1901. Yours would be c.1895. Need to know which grade. Remove the barrel set and look on the water table. These guns were marked with the gauge and the grade from 1 to 7 (and 1P). Depending on grade and condition, $200 to $1000. sales@countrygunsmith.net

From your description it could be an early Crass model in Field Grade. A serial number would determine the exact model. Up to $700 +/-

You have an Ithaca NID model made in 1926, Not knowing condition or grade 300 -3500.

Early 1890's Crass Model Ithaca, poss 1892. Value is going to be dependant upon condition and grade. The grade is usually found stamped on the watertable. Generally, from $250-$1500. sales@countrygunsmith.net

Ithaca really only made one model of double-barrel at any given time. Certain design changes have been called as different models (Flues, Crass, etc) and that can be determined by serial number. Also, the grade designation on the water table is important. sales@countrygunsmith.net

depends on condition and grade, what else can you tell me about it sbailey5@stny.rr.com Your gun was built in 1923.

Impossible to answer at long distance. The Ithaca grade 7 was made in several variations in the 1920s. These are extremely expensive, with values in the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars for a gun in very good condition. It WILL require a hands-on appraisal. Sorry-

Your ithaca mag-10 semi auto shotgun was made from 1975-1986.These shotguns with the vent-rib and checkered stocks will bring between 750-850 dollars for a unfired new in the box grade shtogun that you have.

With the serial number that you have supplied,it sounds as if you have a N.I.D.model Ithaca double barrel shotgun made in either 1928,or 1929.The Initials N.I.D.stand for the words New Ithaca double While you have not provided a detailed description of the shotguns overall condition,including the amount of original finish remaining.I can say that the price range is between 315-825 dollars,depending on the gauge and grade of the shotgun in question.If you choose to repost your question with the grade and correct gauge of your shotgun along with the choice of triggers supplied,and if the barrels are plain or vent rib,I could more define the value for you.

The guage and grade of an Ithaca Hammerless can generally be found on the left front corner of the water table on the frame. The serial number is usually on the right side of the same water table, on the barrel flats, and on the forend iron. To determine which design you have, check http://www.shotgunworld.com/identify.html

Your shotgun will range in price from 1,325 dollars-3,000 dollars for a shotgun with between 10%-50% of its original finish remaining,good wood,and a good set of bores.

A Sousa grade Ithaca should have engraving on almost every square inch of the metal. If you have no engraving, you have a field grade gun.

User Avatar

Open the action and on the receiver flat will be the serial number and another number denoting the grade. Need all of that information, as well as some digital pictures to determine condition. sales@countrygunsmith.net

Without serial #, grade, single or double triggers, beavertail or splinter forearm, ejectors or extractors, length of barrels chokes and length of stock the latter being most common 600-4000 range.

User Avatar

There is no S12 listed in the Standard Catalog. Only 11 people in the world can own a Sousa Grade Ithaca double. If you have one and have lost the barrels you are out of luck. If it is a single barrel trap gun, the odds are not much better.

User Avatar

the book that I haveshows 11 different grades for that serial #. depending on the grade and the condition could be anywhere from $100 for the field grade in poor condition to $15000 for the sousa grade in excellent condition. (source 2005 gun digest guns & prices from krause publications
