Your husband purchased a crescent firearms double barrel 12g No60 empire hammerless made in norwich conn Do you have any idea how much it might be worth?
Crescent was literally the generic "hardware gun" made under many different names for many different compaines. I got the following from Gun Broker.com "Crescent Firearms Co. was started in 1888 by George W. Cilley when he bought out the defunct Bacon Arms Co. of Norwich, Connecticut. Cilley formed a partnership with Frank Foster and Crescent was born. Both men held firearms patents, and both were qualified to design and manufacture firearms. They began making a tip-up single with external side hammers, and began making SxS's in 1891. Crescent was best known for producing "house brand" shotguns. These were made for and sold by a variety of hardware companies, mail order stores, retailers and distributors. Nearly 100 names are known or thought to have been used on shotguns produced by Crescent. In 1929 N. R. Davis Firearms Co. merged with Crescent to become Davis-Crescent Arms Co. H & D Folsom was a New York importer and distributor of firearms from about 1890 to 1930, at which time they merged with the Davis-Crescent Arms Co. In 1931 the depression forced the sale of Davis-Crescent to the Stevens Arms Co., which assembled the remaining parts and sold them under the Stevens name. (Another version of the history has Crescent sold to Universal Tackle and Sporting Goods Co. in 1954) It is not known whether Crescent produced any high grade shotguns, but certainly the house brand shotguns were utilitarian and unadorned. Most sold in the range of $10-$12. Today, only a handful of models, such as the New Empire and the Crescent Certified have collector value. The vast majority are sold as shooters or wall hangers for modest prices, usually under $250."

How much is a Double barrel Knickerbocker 12 gauge shotgun with internal hammers matching serial numbers and all original parts worth?
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.

What caused the constitution to add the the firearms firearms?
The Constitution does not address firearms- it addresses "arms"- meaning weapons. When written, defense of the country- against internal or external enemies, was based on the ability of the citizens at large to resist- by force- which requires being able to keep and carry weapons. The citizens in general were the body of the "militia".

Asked in Measuring Tools
Why is it more convenient to use the vernier calipers than external and internal calipers?
Vernier calipers is more convenient to use compared to the external and internal calipers because vernier caliper by its own could be used as external and internal calipers. When using Vernier caliper you can identify the measurement withtout using ruler, meter stick etc. but the internal and external calipers rely on measuring tools to know the exact measurement...

How much is an American Gun Company 16 gauge worth 2 external hammers?
The American Gun Co. was the name applied to many firearms made by the H & D Folsom/Crescent Arms Co. in the very late 1800's. This organization manufactured low cost firearms under a number of different names. You could actually buy the same firearm at three different stores with three different names on it. These Folsom/Crescent made guns have very little collector value and in the various firearm pricing guides (which you can buy at most large book stores) they generally lump them all together (if they mention them at all) with a value of from $50 to $200 depending on condition, with the statement that you should have any one of them checked by a qualified gunsmith before shooting. I believe most of guns stamped American Gun Co. were designed in the late black powder or very early smokeless powder era and as such their safety with modern ammo. is suspect.
