I've got two - they both belonged to my great grandfather
I shoulda saved them, dad had many when he died. I sold them all to one guy for a bit of cash. One was like new and he paid a bunch for it. Now I prefer the ithaca liteweight I got from a neighbor for 200. it is lite, bottom ejects and shoots great.

I have seen them 97s go for a lot of money lately, 10 years ago you couldnt sell one at a gun show for anything. Reminds me of the model 12 craze 25 years ago, guys were paying way too much fopr them cause they had a reputation
