    Copper, Looks like it is a VH to me? Nice wood, beaver tail a plus in my book.

    I agree with Bill. Has the receiver been blued?

    Take a look at the water table -- it's grade level should be stamped there. From the serial number you can determine the date of manufacture.

    For example, my P grade with serial #640XX was made in 1889.

    Based on the above serial number, your gun was made in 1908.

    Have it checked out by a gunsmith who specializes in vintage shotguns, then go out and shoot a piece of history.

    Dave, I have a Ithaca that someone put Briley thin walls in. I love it, shoot all the games, just change chokes. Bill
