They were made between 1921-1933. At the least, it's over 81 years old.
It looks like a quality re-blue to me. I would think that any firearm that vintage would have some age & patina showing.
The stock looks refinished also.

They are sought after. Good condition ones go from $350.00 on up to $675.00 for really nice ones.
Most folks claim that they are the smoothest working pump action and well made.
It was the forerunner for the Ithaca 37, Remington 31 and also the Browning BPS.

Neat gun! From the pics it looks "blacker" then the factory bluing. As already mentioned, you would expect to see some missing bluing/patina on a gun that old, but there are sure to be a few unicorns out there. Also, as already mentioned, precursor to other shotguns.
