Spencer Gun Co was a trade name retailed by Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co Hardware of Chicago. Their guns were made by a varitey of manufacturers, but the patent date on yours identifies it as a product of WH Davenport Arms Co.
The Spencer Gun Co. made guns for Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co. of Chicago, Il. These guns were actually manufactured by the Crescent Fire Arms Co. of Norwich, Connecticut from about 1892 to 1922 with "Spencer Gun Co" as a brand name. They were good quality insexpensive single and double barrel shotguns. This is not to be confused with the Spencer rifle fo Civil War fame which was manufactured by the Burnside Rifle Co in 1865 or the later Spencer Arms Co. of Windsor, Connecticut who manufactured the first successful slide action repeating shotgun from 1882 to 1889.
Not the Spencer that made the Civil War era carbines. The Spencer name was used on shotguns by several firms. H. Spencer & Company guns were manufactured by Henri Pieper, Leige, Belgium, for Henry Spencer & Co., Chicago Illinois, in the early 1880's. Spencer Gun Co was marked on guns manufactured by Crescent Firearms and distributed by H&D Folsom to various hardware and mercantile retailers c. 1900-1940. Baker Gun Company, Batavia, New York, and Hopkins & Allen, Norwich, CT also marked shotguns with the Spencer name c. 1900.
I have a Spencer hammerles shotgun, and it has America 's new hammerless on the barrel
The company that produced the Spencer rifle was the Spencer Arms Company, not the Spencer Gun Company, and they manufactured a slide action shotgun, not a single shot. It is possible that you have a post war conversion of a Spencer rifle, but not likely. It is most likely a low budget import from Belgium, marked to look like it had a better pedigree than it deserves. Value is minimal as a curiosity.
Manufactured in Belgium by Simonis, Janssen, Dumoulin & Co.

it's an 1850 american gun co. double barrel shotgun made in baltimore maryland
Crescent Firearms is correct, but the time frame is actually 1893 to 1930.
Your Spencer Gun Co shotgun isa "Trade Brand Name" shotgun. That is a shotgun made by a major maker usually for a wholesaler or retailer who chose the name to go on the gun. In this case the gun was probably made by the Crescent Fire Arms Company of Norwich,CT (1892 to 1932) the largest maker ever of such guns. It was made for and sold at wholesale by the Hibbard Spencer Bartlett Co of Chicago, a large dealer in sporting goods. Best guess on a date would be sometime between 1910 and 1925.
