How do you tell who made an Excel shotgun?
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.

Can anyone tell the age of an Excel shotgun from the serial?
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.

Around $100-$200, depending on the exact model, and whether it has damascus steel marrels. AMERICAN GUN CO. firearms were manufactured by Crescent Firearms Co. and distributed by H. & D. Folsom Co. Crescent produced moderate cost guns under nearly 100 different brand names. A brief history of Crescent- CRESCENT FIRE ARMS CO. & CRESCENT-DAVIS ARMS CO. Previous manufacturers and trademarks manufactured circa 1888-1931 in Norwich, CT. In 1888, George W. Cilley bought out the defunct Bacon Arms Co. of Norwich, CT. He then formed an alliance with Frank Foster, and borrowed enough money to form the Crescent Fire Arms Company. Cilley and Foster each held several firearms patents, and both were highly qualified in firearms design and manufacture. Production began with single shot tip-up shotguns that had an external side hammer. Double barrel shotgun production was started in 1891. In 1893, they began making bicycle chains, and that same year, H&D Folsom took over the company's financial control. Early in the 1890s, Crescent built a rifle that resembled the Remington No. 4. A very rare Crescent was the .410 bore shotgun pistol, which was introduced in the 1920s. In 1929, N.R. Davis Firearms Co., then owned by Warner Arms Corp., merged with Cresent to become Crescent-Davis Arms Co. Because of financial crisis, business continued to decline, and they were forced to sell out. Savage Arms Co. acquired Davis-Cresent in 1931, assembled guns from the remaining parts, and these guns were sold under the Crescent name only.
