A grade = NID?

I just bought an A grade off an internet auction. From the pictures it looks like an Ithaca NID model with different engraving. Is this correct? Mine also has a single trigger. Was a single trigger an option?

I'm hoping someone here can enlighten me on A grade Lefevers. I would like to learn more history on this model. Thanks.

the gun is actualy a better fit and finished Nitro Special....and yes a single trigger was an option....

they only made them for 5 or 6 years...1934-1939/40....with the last couple years just assembling left over parts....I think 3000 guns or less total....

field guns go for about twice what a Nitro in the same condition would bring....they also made a Skeet grade that is worth about 3 times a nitro with same condition.... some pics...would love to see it...

Here is an A-Grade .410 Skeet. Only about 18 bored S/S. Julia's has one in their upcoming auction.
