Remington, Browning and Parker Shotguns are usually my favorite Shotguns, but I fell in love with this Ithaca 4E Flues antique Trap gun at first sight.

I've read that Ithaca made a habit of producing guns for which Remington patents had expired. Ithaca really hit home runs with the Flues and Knickerbocker trap guns as far as I'm concerned!

'One of my favorite things to do in the Fall is to go to the Turkey Shoots. For those of you that may not know what I'm talking about, a Turkey Shoot is where a bunch of guys bring their shot guns to an event usually sponsored by a Community Center or Volunteer Fire Department. The sponsor provides the shells and paper targets and the shooters pay $3 to $5 to compete for a prize (usually a ham, turkey, slab of bacon, sausage, etc.).'

Stevens Shotgun Serial Numbers

If the shotgun has been modified in any way (example: sawed off barrel) the gun cannot be sold because it is illegal.

18 and 26

If the barrel is less than 18 inches long or the overall gun is less than 26 inches, this gun is worth 10 years in a federal correctional facility.
'.. modified in any way.. '?
Where the notion that 'modifying' a weapon renders it 'illegal' would come from I have no clue since the modification of firearms of all types supports a multi-billion dollar industry. As long as the modifications do not result in a violation of state or federal firearms laws, I can do anything I bloody well please. It is a common bit of ignorance that a 'sawed off' barrel on a shotgun renders it illegal. As long as the final result is a shotgun with a minimum overall length of 26' with at least 18' of barrel, it is perfectly legal. However, registration with the BATF ($200 fee) as a 'Short Barreled Shotgun' allows one to create a shotgun with virtually any dimensions. Registration MUST be done PRIOR to shortening the gun. Google 'short barreled shotgun' or just 'SBS' and read about it.
If your gun is not of legal dimensions, dispose of it as discretely and quickly as possible -- the Feds take these violations VERY SERIOUSLY and you don't want to do time.
As to your original question ..
I believe the Crescent Gun Co. which made them closed it's doors in 1931. Knickerbockers are common and while a decent gun, were never anything special. I recently bought a decent, all original specimen in 20 ga. at a local Cabela's for $99.95.
As long as the modifications to your gun are neatly and legally done, the gun is worth what someone is willing to pay.
