Brian - as a point of curiosity, what do you see that would indicate to you that it didn't leave the factory with a BTFE ?

Incidentally, I wonder where the roll joint is...?

The gun started life as an extractor gun. Evidenced by the filled in hole from the extractor set screw in the barrel lug. So, we know that the forend iron was changed at the time of the ejector conversion. So, that would mean that the current forend wood was also part of that change.
I suppose it is possible that the gun was originally a beavertail extractor gun, though I think it unlikely.

Would anyone mind putting a rough value to this gun?

To Dean's point....

Given the missing roll joint, a visit to a qualified gun smith is advisable BEFORE trying to fire it.
