serial #457542, 410 bore, 28'' best fluid steel barrels, both choked full with bright excellent bores. This is a lovely and rare high-grade smallbore Ithaca double ejectorgun, one of only 14 such guns built by the Ithaca Gun Company in this grade. The barrels retain about 95% original blue, the loss is due primarily to light and even fading showing pewter at the muzzles and above the forend at the carry point. The barrel is factory equipped with dual ivory target beads and shows light bands of engraving at the breeches. The New Ithaca Double frame shows open Grade 4 Ithaca-style scroll engraving with game birds left and right and retains about 98% original color case-hardening, muted slightly at the carry point of the frame. The lightly engraved triggerguard retains perhaps 60% original blue and the factory single selective trigger retains strong original gold plate showing only light wear. The checkered deluxe English walnut pistolgrip buttstock and splinter style forend rate very fine to perhaps near excellent, the forend closer to fine. The butt exhibits lovely grain figure and has small handling marks or light dings sparsely scattered with crisp fleur-de-lis ribbon checkering and an un-engraved shield-shaped monogram plate along the toeline. The forend shows a bit more wear with a small sliver missing along its left upper edge, its ebony tip insert is intact, with the remnants of colors on the latch and iron. The length of pull to the original grooved hard rubber buttplate is 14'' with drops of 1 11/16'' and 2 7/8''. The gun features factory single selective trigger, ejectors and cocking indicators. The gun functions well mechanically, is tight on-face with the top lever still right of center. An absolutely lovely smallbore Ithaca belonging to this gentleman of means whose stewardship of the forest and wood lands lives on in his 6000 acre ''Great Mountain Forest'', fostered by he and fellow Yale student Starling Childs in 1913, Walcott trail named in his honor. (3E9558-16) {C&R} [Senator Frederic C. Walcott Collection] (6000/8000)
