This was a trade name sold by H&D Folsom Sporting Goods of New York and apparently also by Sears Roebuck c. 1900. It may have been made by Crescent Firearms, but it may also be a Belgian import. Early Crescents were made with barrels from Belgium, so either may have proof marks on the barrels, but if there is an "EL", "ELG", or a mark that looks like the Washington Monument on the action, then it is from Belgium. NO IT WILL NOT TAKE 3" SHELLS. In fact, it may only take 2 1/2" shells if it is pre-WWI.
