Only by comparing it to known products of the possible makers. Joe Vorisek's book lists the makers as Crescent, Crescent-Davis, J. Stevens, and Iver Johnson. But since Stevens/Savage bought Crescent and Davis, and operated them as a separate company for a few years then took over the line as Stevens, there will be identical guns from those three company names and no way to determine if it was made in 1925 by Crescent, 1930 by Crescent-Davis, or 1935 by Stevens.

Excel shotguns were made by Crescent, Crescent-Davis, Iver Johnson, and J. Stevens. If it was made by one of the first two, the number probably isn't a true serial number and the exact age cannot be determined. There are a couple of experts who MIGHT be able to place one of the other two into a range of +/- 5 years.
Excel was a trade name used by HD Folsom Arms and Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works on shotguns made for Montgomery Wards.
