Blue book lists the "Deerslayer" at $300 in 100% and $195 at 95%. There are many variations of the model 37 in the book.

That will tell you the year.

Check completed auctions on Gunbroker or Auction arms and that will help you approximate the value.

I have a 37R 16 gauge that shoots real well. It's one of my favorite shotguns.

Go on the 16ga.com site and ask there. That's all they talk about is 16 ga guns. The Ithaca is one of the best handling upland game guns ever made. Light, fast swinging, and very well made. A older gun will have all machined parts and the fit finish is better than many of todays offerings. Very good gun.

Just a ballpark,since you have two barrels for it. Around the 375 to 575 range.
depending on condition.

She was made in 1963 and is above the 855000 serial number range. So you could get another barrel. If it was below that number you could get another barrel but you would need a gunsmith to fit it for you. There was a different thread pattern on the older guns.
