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

Palmetto was a trade name used by Edward K Tryon of Philadelphia on lower grade revolvers and shotguns sold thru hardware stores, c.1880 - 1914.
From your limited description, I'd say: Probably 1890-1914. No, not safely. Very little ($125-$150 as a mantle decoration).

Manufactured between 1886 and 1916. Retail value $50-$75 unless in like-new condition.
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.
Built c. 1930-1948 by Stevens division of Savage Arms. If in useable condition, possibly worth $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.

From the late 1800's until WWI thousands of shotguns like this were imported from Belgium. If the country of origin is marked on the gun, it was probably made after 1893 when this was required by international trade agreements. The companies that retailed or distributed some of the trade names have been identified, but I don't find Hanover on that list. Although these guns were safe enough when new, the damsacus barrels may have deterioriated and should be retired. They usually bring $125-$150 as mantle decorations.

Eastern was a Sears trade name. Actual manufacturers included Meriden Firearms, Iver Johnson, or Stevens. If you will tell everything that is marked on the gun, I may be able to identify the exact manufacturer, possibly the model, and estimate the approximate year of manufacture.

Utica Firearms Company guns were manufactured by Crescent Arms, Norwich, Ct, for the Simmons Hardware Company of St. Louis, Missouri c. 1900-1920. If functional, it should be worth about $150. If not useable, but looks good over the fireplace, it is worth about the same as a decorator.
