Here is a late model field grade Flues 20 gauge. Serial #378xxx, made in 1924. 26" barrels, 2.5" chambers. Nice solid little gun. Image

Well I didn't hold out much hope, but, wrongly spelled and mis-identified at a UK Auction I have now what I believe is a Flues 10g 1911 vintage. Cosmetically a little rough and not a high grade, I am nonetheless thrilled to have found an Ithaca Double. Ser. No. 207775 (all matching), its a great lump of a gun, 28" plain barrels 1/4 and 3/4 choke, 3" (76mm) chambers, wide machined rib, non ejector, all working and as tight a lock-up as you could wish for. I love it!
I should be grateful for the forums input, particularly if I have wrongly identified it myself!

Thanks Donald, I guess that Damascus barrels add a lot of value. Would you say that mine was 'Field Grade'? it does have the retriever engraving, although not deep (maybe just worn) but no fancy stars or scrolls
Regards
Roland

Don't think it would be a 1.5 like mine, but looks like a 1. A field gradse is very plain. Very strong guns, almost unbreakable. Will be a great shooter for you. It will take a bit of getting used to, be will be a comfortable gun to shoot. Thanks Donald
