Default Early Single Barrel Trap

Yesterday I bought what is advertised to be, a very early Single Barrel Trap gun # 176245. It is also a 30 in barrel, which I believe makes it even more rare.
Assumed to be an SC model, records show S grade. Bought it from the OCA auction listed by Icollector.com.
I will post pictures as soon as I receive it.

Congratulations Jack. We are awaiting your pictures. The ID and Serialization Book lists your gun as a C grade 12 gauge with 30" barrel and straight hand stock. Very nice.

The Serialization Book lists three guns of lower serial numbers than yours. There could be more in missing records, but maybe not. What is OCA? Are you referring to OGCA?

Jack I believe (according to my math) you may have the earliest known SBT to exist. The Parker Pages lists 176798 as the current earliest known SBT. Send for a letter and ask if this can be verified. Could make the gun more valuable.
