The catch was that it did not work. Rust and dirt. I took it apart, cleaned and oiled it, and now it works. It was made in May of 1963, which is a couple months older than my father's.
I have one from Dec 1979, that has much nicer wood, like Flea21's 1100.

As the great senator Phil Gramm often said about his buying old shotguns, "I own more shotguns than I need, but not as many as I want."
I like it... I want one from 1981 if it can be found... Make the deal happen buddy and I will take it!
