Best Answer

Depending on who the writer is, Ithaca started making doubles sometime between 1880-1883. They had serial numbers from the very beginning. There were several models, Baker, Crass, Lewis, Minier and Flues, usually named after the individual that made a significant improvement.

I don't know the answer, but I know where you can find it. Check your library for "The Ithaca Gun Company - From the Beginning" by Walter Snyder. There's a list of serial numbers that are verified as being Ithaca shotguns owned and used by Wells Fargo Company. Since thousands of cheap shotguns have had fake WF&Co marks added, about the only one's that will bring a premium from advanced collectors (of firearms or Wels Fargo memorabilia) are the ones listed there.
