Is the ‘1’ the grade stamp? Would 2 3/4” chambers be correct? The barrels have ‘4’ stamped, is that the chokes? Would a ultra sonic clean unhide and case color? Pretty cool license under the butt plate.

Yes grade stamp
Choke bore #4 both barrels?
Can’t hurt to clean it

The stock probably has shellac on it so no alcohol.

Not uncommon to find the web broken just in front of the hand pen when you pull the stock off so be mindful.

Nice find!

I believe it is an about 1922 No. 1S with Cockerill Steel barrels; tubes made by Laurent Lochet-Habran.
The 'LLH' is also found on Field Grade "Smokeless Powder Steel" barrels

1924 Janney, Semple, Hill & Co. catalog

'4' indicates Full choke

It is a later Flues model. You will need to measure the chambers. The rest of your questions have been answered. The Buffalo Bill museum have the factory books that will include your gun if you want a 'factory' letter.
Enjoy your American classic! 4 is full choke.

It has 2 3/4” chambers. What choke is 4 ?

I was thinking the grade was 1 1/2 with this type of engraving ?

Walt,
What is the difference in the later Flues model and the earlier one?

I had a 1 1/2 grade that looked just like the pics. It was choked 2 & 4. As already mentioned not many of those around!
