Hello. First time I've ever used a forum. I'm looking for information on the above. I am 68 years old and it was my grandfather's. It has been stolen and I'm trying to get an idea of the value for the police report. I haven't handled it in more than 10 years, so I'm a little foggy on the name. I'm not sure if it was made in Utica NY, it might have been Meriden, CT. I believe it was made in the 1920's or 30's.

Does this ring a bell for anyone?

Loc: AZ but dreaming of KS
Sir: If made in Meriden, it was likely a tradename gun sold by Sears. As a legacy it was priceless, but as a firearm I'm sorry to say it was worth very little. You might look here to see if the guns are similar

Could you be confusing Utica with Ithaca? Ithaca doubles are very common. In fact, there's a virtual genetic tree of them, even going to guns manufactured in Japan in modern times. Without more specific info on any gun, there's no possible way to put a value on one. Even then estimates are best left to experts.
