Are you sure it doesn't say Genuine Armory Steel? That would make it a product of Crescent Fire Arms. There should be more markings if they haven't worn off.
Provide a detailed description including gauge, barrel length, all markings, overall condition and finish.

Plymouth was a trade brand shotgun made by Crescent Fire Arms Co and later by Davis-Warner Arms Co. It was distributed/retailed by H & D Folsome. Shotgun Markings also lists a hammer double barrel by an unknown Belgian maker and indicates the retailer was Spear & Co.
If it is marked only Blue Grass, not Blue Grass Model 1900 or Bluegrass Arms Co, and is a hammer double, it was made by Hopkins & Allen Arms, 1896 to 1915, according to Vorisek's Shotgun Markings.

With the serial number that you provided,your Ithaca hammer less double barrel shotgun was made between the years 1904-1907.I could not asses a value of this shotgun without a brief discription of its condition.I will say that most shotguns of this age and make will bring in the neighbor hood of 400 dollars and up.
1937 assuming its not a hammer gun, if it is, then it was made in 1907
From your description, it could date to approximately 1860 or 2002. Are there any markings that might identify the manufacturer/model, etc?
I would have to do some searching to verify this, but I don't believe Stevens ever made a shotgun using percussion caps.
