Henry Arms Co. was a name used on shotguns distributed by H&D Folsom c. 1900. It may have been manufactured by Crescent Firearms, Meriden, CT, or it may have been imported from a Belgian maker. No relation to the famous Henry Repeating Rifles which were the forerunners of the Winchester lever actions. Value is something less than $200 unless it is in like-new condition.

A single shot would bring less than $79. That's what a new utility single shot sells for. Even though yours may be old, there is no collector interest.

Both HENRY ARMS CO and ECLIPSE GUN CO were tradenames used by the HD Folsom Co on shotguns imported before World War 1. Both brands were made by Henri Pieper in Belgium.
