Empire Arms was a trade name sold by Sears Roebuck. If it has the Crescent name on it too, it would date from about 1907 to 1930. It's nothing a serious collector would want, but if checked by a gunsmith and given his OK, should be worth $200 or more as a shooter.

The 410 hammerless essex shotgun is worth anywhere from $300 to $350 in good shape.

The Crescent Arms "Empire Hammerless" double barrel (20 guage) is not a collectable gun, but is a "shooter". Thus, in shootable condition, it is worth about $200. That's what I paid for mine, strictly for bird hunting.

Yes Smith and Wesson made a hammerless shotgun. I did read at one time they were the first to do so, but they did not sell a lot of them because of the price back in the late 1800's
