Bushmaster, when are you going to burn that wood. You've been taking pictures on that same wood pile for a year now...Geo

By the way, NICE IVORY JOHNSON!

Back in the early 70s, I used to scarf up every catalog and brochure I could get my hands on. If memory serves me right, my 1971-ish Ithaca catalog boasted a single barrel shotgun for $4,500! Did this high of a grade exist then?

According to Frank Conley's book, the Dollar Grade Ithaca Knick SBT sold for $4,500 in 1970.

The "Dollar Grade" was actually a grade by itself if I recall correctly. The "$4500 Grade" was a grade in itself as I recall. Walt Snyder explains the single trap grades in his book. Later price increases went as high as $6500, maybe higher.

Ithaca Flues Sousa Grade, circa 1918. Not mine but I know where it is.

Joe:
Is that the Sousa grade made from a Victory Model?
BTW, the Sunburst pad is from a later era.

Bushmaster, best guess we have is the wood was factory refinished in the early 1960's. That was also Walt Synder's opinion when he saw the pics. The gun is currently sitting in a dark dusty corner of a shop in a small country town. Owner is not a shooter and he has a very inflated idea of its value. Perhaps someday. Gun is mechanically perfect and does not show much use.
