How old and what is the value of a double barrel side by side 16 ga shotgun marked Crescent Fire Arms Co New Empire 0934 and is a buttpad with Redhead Brand Chicago Patent no 105353 original?

Crescent was in business from 1892 to 1930. If it is a hammerless gun, it was not made before 1903. Value would be from $150-$250 and the Redhead recoil pad is an addon but it's not going to deduct anything from the value like it would on a high-end collectable.
