American Gun Company was a trade name used by Crescent Firearms for H.D. Folsom at their retail outlets.

Make sure you have it checked by a gunsmith before you shoot modern shells with those Damascus barrels.

yellopops - How old is your friend? If he's over 200 years old, you may be wrong. 28 guage has been used since the days of muzzle-loading guns and is still being made.

Daniel Boone Gun Company: Trade name on shotguns made for Belknap Hardware Company of Louisville, Ky. Most likely manufacturer would be Crescent Firearms, but it may also be from J. Stevens, Iver Johnson, various Belgian companies, or others. Most likely period of manufacture would be the 1930's or 1940's, but could be earlier or later. Value, if it is a side-hammer with damascus barrels, would depend on how well it looks over a fireplace, maybe $125-$150. If it is has fluid steel barrels and is fully functional, it should bring $250 or more in most areas.

Not sure if this is your gun, but Leader Gun Company was a trade name used on shotguns retailed by the Charles Williams Stores, Inc. of New York. Most likely manufacturer would be Crescent Arms, Norwich, CT. "Nitro" would imply proofed for smokeless powder.

That would be a Stevens/Savage 315 with a Montgomery Ward name.
