12ga 870 Wingmaster (old version). Sold it to help pay for the 1100 bought later. I didn't (couldn't) collect in those days.

LC Smith Field Grade given to me by an Uncle in the early 60s. I had no idea of the quality of the gun because my other guns were a cheap Stevens single shot 22 ($11) and a 303 Lithgow Enfield bought from an Army Surplus store for $16, both acquired in the mid to late 50s. I was an adult before realizing the Elsie was a fine gun, although there is no collectors' market for Field Grades.

When I got into sporting clays, I really lucked out with a 60-70's era 20 ga R870 LW Wingmaster. Schweeet! I wore the thing out cranking after true pairs. I had her refurbished by Remington for a ridiculously low price, and she is my backup S/G for competition.(always have a backup plan)

1941 Ithaca 37R solid-rib in 16ga. First shot it 54 years ago, last shot it yesterday at some elusive skeets. Only dropped one, but you would think that after 54 years I would have it mastered
