I have a 16 guage nitro special with serial 149296. i have pinpointed it in the area of 1925-6. nitro specials were created from 1923-1946 serial numbers 100000-360000. since yours is 206508, it wold probaly be an early to mid 30's model. sadly, nitro specials aren't worth much. Lucky to get $300 off one, because a. it's not a real lefever (made by ithica, who bought the company out) and b. it was originally a cheap weapon. my advice: use it for hunting. my nitro shoots great and it's a fun gun. keep it in good condition. the're starting to make new parts for them, so the ones with all stock parts (like ours) will go up in PRICE
The gun is a "Trade Brand Name" shotgun made some time between 1900 and 1940. A "Trade Brand Name" shotgun is one that was made by a major maker for and was sold by a wholesale sporting goods dealer, a retail chain store or an independent seller (your local hardware store) who chose the name to go on the gun. Guns with the name NITRO HUNTER were made by one of three makers, either Crescent Fire Arms Company of Norwich, CN (1892 to 1930+), the W. H. Davenport Arms Company, also of Norwich (1878 to 1910) or the Stevens Arms & Tool Company of Chicopee Falls,MA (1864 to date) for and was sold at wholesale by the Belknap Hardware Company of Louisville KY, a wholesale sporting dealer.
I'm sure someone has LeFever's serial lists but they don't seem to be readily available. The Nitro Special was manufactured from 1921 to 1948 if that's close enough for you.AnswerIthaca manufactured the Lefever Nitro Specials with serial numbers between 185400 and 214399 in 1925.

The Ithaca-Lefever Nitro Specials with serial numbers between 158700 and 185399 were manufactured in 1924. Ithaca acquired the Lefever company in 1916, but manufactured two models of double-barrel guns (the Lefever Nitro Special and the Lefever A Grade) under the original company name between 1921 and 1947. Firearms expert Charles Gage estimated the collector value of another piece from that year to be between $200 and $500, depending on condition whether all parts are original.
