1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    It is spelled Ithaca. Just like Ithaca, NY. Where the 5E was made. Could you post photos and an asking price for the 5E?

    To be sure it's a Knick 5E, you need to supply the serial number found on the tang of the trigger guard.

    Not to take the wind out of your sails, but Grade 5E Knicks didn't cost $500 in the 1920's. Their MSRP was $175, and left the factory to sellers at roughly $120. Grade 7Es during that time frame sold for a MSRP of $350.

    To appreciate this however (and supporting your point that they were very expensive guns at the time) consider this: at that same time you could walk into a Ford dealership and buy a brand new Model A for a little over $400. So, spending almost half the price of a brand new car on a 5E trap gun was a very big deal. Spending almost the entire price of a new car on a Grade 7E was an even bigger deal.

    Let us know the serial number & we can nail down the date of manufacture for you.

    Pete

    I have never understood the logic of witholding the provenance on a gun until it is paid for and delivered. It's like demanding payment before the buyer is allowed to look down the bore.

    ithaca1, If it is an inexpensive fix you should get it fixed and then try to sell it. You are asking top dollar for a 5e Flues gun. For that kind of price I would be looking for a lot more case coloring and the finish on your stock is terrible. I am not trying to be criticle but you need a good honest opinion on this gun. I collect Ithaca's and am a student in the study of them. jmho Bill
