Eastern Arms was a Sears Roebuck trade name. Manufacturers included Meriden Firearms, Iver Johnson A&C, Stevens/Savage Arms, and Crescent Firearms.
1926 to 1945.
'1929' is going to be a patent date, not a model number. Eastern Arms Co was not an actual manufacturer, it was a brand name used by Sears on guns they marketed, generally made by the Stevens Arms Co. Value is strictly based on its usability as a shooter, and single-barrel 16ga shotguns will generally sell for less than $100. 1929 is a model number marked on Stevens/Springfield shotguns.
Riverside Arms is a brand name used by the J Stevens Arms Co. on many good quality shotguns. The value depends on model, gauge, and condition. There is little collector interest in single barrel shotguns. Information about J Stevens Arms apply to Riverside Arms Co.

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.
Turn of the centuty give or take a few decades.
Crescent Fire Arms made millions of similar shotguns with over a hundred different trade names. I doubt if anyone has a good estimate, but there were a lot. 20 gauge will be harder to find than 12s.
I can't find a cross-reference for that number, but Eastern Arms was a trade name used by Sears Roebuck. Most of the shotguns were made by Stevens/Savage.
No published sn data.
Springfield Arms shotguns were manufactured by the Stevens division of Savage Arms from 1920 to 1948.
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.
EASTERN ARMS CO was a tradename most often associated with the Sears, Roebuck& Co company in the very early 1900s. The double barrel shotguns were typically Belgian and sold as the low-price line, and the single-barrel guns were typically made by contractors such as Iver Johnson. Value is going to be under $100.
