Your husband's Nitro Hunter was made either by LeFever or Ithaca. LeFever made shotguns that included the Automatic Hammerless, Premiere, Nitro Special, and the Nitro Hunter. LeFever was acquired by Ithaca Gun in 1916, and Ithaca continued to market shotguns under the LeFever brand name until just before WW2. Many of these shotguns were field grade and of good quality. Parts are not available. In good condition they can fetch between $300 and $700, in poor condition can be as low as $100. Unfortunately, most are not in good condition when you find them.
