The most comprehensive coverage of these is probably in the book "The Ithaca Gun Company: From the Beginning" by Snyder. Check with Amazon and others. It is not uncommon to see copies advertised at www.gunbroker.com for $100 or so.
The 2 letters in your serial number dates your shotgun to the year 2004.
Since the current Ithaca company does not have those records we can only guess at the date. I do have these facts and you can see where your shotgun fits. Serial number 510040xxx was made circa 1973 as it is a 20ga and they were not mfg until then. Then 510080xxx was made circa 1975, and 5100103xxx was mfg circa 1977. So you 510061631 was made circa 1974. Best I can do. Remember this is only a guess based on actual purchase dates of the three Ithaca shotgun mentioned. nge of ownership at Ithaca, and published records are incomplete. They began making the Model 51 in 1970. You might try emailing Ithaca Gun Company to see if they can provide a date of manufacture.
i have 2 Remington model 141, carbine serial #c 69757 and a 141 gamemaster serial #25543. what are the production dates and how many were produced?
The best way to find the age of a Mossberg 500A Shotgun is simply to call the company's customer service line and have the serial number and model number handy. Mossberg has yet to publish a list of their serial numbers in relation to the dates of manufacture.

Your browning shotgun dates to 1929 with the serial number that you provided.
They all should have serial numbers if not you have a counter fit
Your shotgun was made for Montgomery Ward stores by Savage/Stevens/Springfield, and is their Model 59A. This gun was made from 1934-1973. If your shotgun has no serial numbers, it was made prior to 1968. Serial numbers were not required by law on rifles and shotguns until then. Unfortunately, we can't really nail down dates for most of the "store brand" guns other than the dates that the parent model was made, as there are few public records for these guns.
For whatever help this is on 20 Aug 05, I am holding an Ithaca M49 which shows that the serial number is 9 digits long and stamped into the left front side, parallel to the barrel, and forward of the trigger in the action case. I hope this helps, Brad This is 28 Aug 05, my Ithaca M-49 has a 6 digit serial number, and is also stamped on the left front side, parallel to the barrel, and forward of the trigger. Dan The earliest (around 1962) models of the M49 Saddlegun didn't have serial numbers. The serial numbers were added to the lower left of the receiver in the later 1960s as required by the gun act of 1968. I don't recall the exact dates.
I am aware of no public listing of Model 37 manufacture dates, but IDSA Books publishes Ithaca Featherlight Repeaters. They're on the net. My info says 1957, but I have no clue what the -2 suffix means. The -2 suffix indicates barrel belonging to shotgun 704515

"Ithaca Featherlight Repeaters" by Walter Claude Snyder
Serial number dates it as a 1983, Auto 5, 12 gauge magnum. FYI serial numbers start at 01001 at the start of each year. Without more information the best estimate on value I can give is 300-600
