Best Answer

Apparently Victor Collette was not a prolific gunmaker. I can only find one other reference to his work. That is a pinfire revolver, so apparently he was active in the last half of the 19th century. If you examine your shotgun, you should find an oval surrounding the letters ELG and a star. If there is a crown over this oval, the gun was proofed in Leige, Belgium, after 1893. If there is no crown, it was proofed earlier. Thousands of similar guns were imported to the US in the late 1800's and there is little collector interest in them. They are valued primarily as decorators and usually sell for less than $200.

I doubt if you will find any books on Crescent shotguns. As one person on another board explained "people with $50 guns don't buy $50 books to read about them". Joe Voresik is working on a new edition of "Shotgun Markings" which may include a lot more information than is currently available.
