94 years old, +/- 20. If twist steel barrels and side hammers, more likely (but not absolutely) prior to WWI. If fluid steel and a boxlock (back hammers or hammerless) ALMOST certainly after c. 1905.

Made by the Crescent Firearms Co. If it is marked as AMERICAN GUN CO, it would be 1905-1922. If marked as CRESCENT FIREARMS is would be 1922-1930.

The exact value of a John M Smyth Co Faultless Goose Gun shotgun would actually be dependent on a couple different factors. Some of these factors would include the age and condition of the shotgun.

If your shotgun has Damascus barrels,then by all means do not fire modern smokeless ammo through your shotgun.I would have your shotgun looked at by a qualified gunsmith before attempting to fire any ammo through a shotgun of this age.
