This firearm, manufactured in 1892, is refered to as a Crass Model after its designer. Although this was advertised as Ithacas first hammerless shotgun they were also made, I believe, in an exposed hammer model which can affect the value. They were made in many different grades and guages which can also have a major affect on value. A 12 guage field grade hammerless gun, probably the most common, in poor condition would probably bring only about $300 bucks and that assumes that it is in working condition.
