If it needs a stock and forearm, it's not worth much. If it is a boxlock with fluid steel barrels, fully functional and OK'd by an experienced gunsmith, it would be worth $200+ as a shooter. If it has laminated barrels and side hammers, it might bring $125-$150 as a mantle decoration. Like any other machine 80+ years old, parts are where you find them. Your local gunsmith can probably find wood that will fit or can be made to fit. To be a decorator, it would be enough to repair the existing stocks with Elmer's glue and wood filler if that is possible.

Pretty much an impossible undertaking.
The Knickerbocker was made by Cresent, but under the Folsom House Brand. A great recourse for shotgun information can be found in a book called "The Golden Age of Shotgunning" by Bob Hinman. GK & Associates, LLC
@ 100 USD depending on condition.
no it has a 4 digit serial # Knickerbocker came from 2 different companies. The American Gun Company, New York, stamped a five digit serial number on the barrel, forestock and stock end.
The Knickerbocker was created in 1833.
The Knickerbocker ended in 1859.
Impossible to value with just the serial number and "shotgun".
