What you have is this. Crescent Firearms was a large manfacturer of shotguns in the late 1880's in Norwich, Ct. In 1893 they sold out to H&D Folsom Arms Co. of N.Y. They produce many shotguns under over 200 names. As for your Whippet they were a large Chicago Hardware firm who they put their name on firearms. In 1931 Folsom sold out to J. Stevens who then were pick up by Savage later. Your was made in the early 1930's for this hardware co. You should have a gunsmith check for chamber length as they did not make them 2 3/4 inch till about 1927. Value is very low $50. to $100 David Pidgeon

Savage Arms and J Stevens made the J. C. Higgins sears robuck and company shotgun. If you look on on the right side of it should say Stevens model (whatever model # it has here) like mine says (Stevens model 311A)

If it is a 12 ga side by with a logo of a dog leaping through a circle and "WHIPPET" along with "H.S.B. & CO." it's a J. Stevens made for Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Company of Chicago, Illinois. Likely comps to STEVENS 311, if it has no serial number it is pre 1968. It's a shooter with no collector value appx $150-$250 depending on condition, slightly less than the Stevens due to off brand production. I have the same gun in 30" 2 bead, full/mod and use it as a "Buddy" gun for trap range.
