Mississippi Valley Arms Company: Trade name by the H. & D. Folsom Arms Company on firearms made for the Shapleigh Hardware Company of St. Louis, Missouri. Folsom was a sporting goods wholesale/retail business in New York City. The actual manufacturer of a hammerless double would be their subsidiary company, Crescent Firearms, Norwich, CT, between 1907 and 1930.

While there are several gun manufacturer\'s that offer serial numbers on their shotguns, unfortunately the Mississippi Valley Arms Co. does not. The year and gauge of the gun would depend on when it was manufactured. For example, Mississippi Valley had numerous shotguns produced by a subsidiary company called Crescent Firearms, while many were imported from Belgium.

Ohio Valley Arms shotguns were called trade name shotguns and were made by Crescent Arms. Crescent arms made guns from 1892 to 1931 and would put anyones company name on the gun if they purchased at least 12 of them and paid for the die with their name on it.
