Found this and the serial number puts it at 1918. Slide is an Ithaca (mid-40s slide) No other markings visible.
awful coating that will be stripped and a simple blue to have a fun period-esq shooter. What would a value of the frame and slide alone. To build something similar from pieces would cost?
waiting on my FFL to confirm they will accept from a private party (Washington state is crazy) so figured I would ask up the question to the pros.
