The American Gun Company was the "house brand" of H&D Folsom Sporting Goods, New York City, c. 1895-1930. The guns were manufactured by Crescent Arms, Norwich, Connecticut. Their single barrel shotguns sold for less than $10 when new. Their double barrel shotguns sold for $10-$15 when new. Old trade-name shotguns are not generally collected and not safe with modern ammunition, so are valued solely as a mantle ornament. The value of these guns if they are broken, badly worn, or rusty is less than $50. In like-new condition, it might be over $200. In "average" condition, it would probably be about $125.

Pretty much an impossible undertaking.
how to tell the age of a 12 gauge single barrel shot gun made by American Gun Company?
I believe that the Plymouth side by sides were made by Cresent Firearms.
around 1900 +- 5 years
as your looking down the gun, the gauge should be stamped on the left barrel back by the stock.
