I was searching the internet for info on an old IJ Break-Top Hammerless and found this site/thread. Mine appears to be of the approx. vintage as the above. It has the same Pat. date stamped on the butt. The serial number is B66897. Can you give me the production date and approx. value in 60-70% condition? I'm not planning to sell/trade it, just wondering is all.
I can post pics if that would help.
After reading almost this entire thread, I believe you must be THE authority on the old IJs!
Thanks for your help.
