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.

Who is the manufacturer of a 12 gauge shotgun marked Utica firearms serial number 59651 A cap on the pistol grip is marked Simmons Hardware Company?

The bible for info. on older shotguns made by other than the big name manufactures is the "Golder Age Of Shotguning" by Bob Hinman. In the index of this book he lists literally hunderds of old brand name shotguns along with some info on the co. Unfortunatly all he has to say about a co. called the Utica Firearms Co. is "Hammer double-barrel. Nothing further known." He must have put an extreme amount of research into this obscure list of manufactures (and this was 30 to 40 years ago) and to have come up with "nothing further known" is not very incouraging. My guess is that this Utica Firearms Co. is the manufacture of your shotgun.

In 1888, george w. cilley bought out the defunct Bacon Arms Co of Norwich, Conn. He then formed an alliance with Frank Foster and borrowed money to form the Crescent Firearms Co.

How can you find out how old a Utica 12 gauge double barrel is with serial numbers 35745 and how much it is worth?

If it is marked "Utica Arms Co.", compare it to a Crescent Model 6 (1903-1930) or a J. Stevens Arms Co early Model 311 (after 1920). The Stevens might even be marked "5000", "5100" or "311" on the receiver. If marked "Utica Firearms Co." or "Utica Special" it should be the Crescent Model 6. Those marked "Utica Firearms Co. London Fluid Steel" are also by Crescent, but should have outside hammers and could date back to 1892, but probably made no later than 1914. With the mark "Utica Fire Arms Co. Pat. Nov. 25, '90, March 29, '97" it was made by Hopkins & Allen Mfg Co. (1868-1898, but the patent date would indicate these guns were made in 1897 and 1898) I'm not sure if these were single or double barrel guns. All were made for Simmons Hardware 1875-1940

What is the age and value of a Utica Firearms Co shotgun?

Utica Firearms Company: Trade name used by the Simmons Hardware Company of St. Louis, Missouri on firearms they retailed c. 1900. Yours is a bit unusual if it has damascus barrels but no exterior hammers. Shooters want fluid steel barrels, decorators want side hammers, and few collectors want hardware-store guns, so I'd say unusual is not a good thing. Even in NRA Excellent condition (98%+ original finish) I doubt if you could get over $200.
