Crescent manufactured shotguns from 1888 to 1940. They sold a million utility shotguns that were "branded" by hardware stores and the like.

Typical value is $85 to $150.

I'm not aware of any resource for looking up the serial numbers.

Made between 1893 and 1930. With a more complete description I may be able to narrow that down a little, but cannot give a definite year of manufacture. Value will be less than $200 unless it is a like-new example of the early (pre-WWI) model.

Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co, Chicago (1882-1962), retailed the Victor shotguns which were manufactured by Crescent Arms, Norwich, CT (1893-1930). Can't determine the date any closer than that, but if it has fluid steel barrels it was made sometime after 1900. Value will be in the range of $75 or less.

What is the Value of my Crescent Fireams, 12 Gauge, Double Barrel, Curly Hammers......no serial number that I can find

Are the hammers on the back of the lock or on the sides? The first is probably a shooter worth $100 - $200 depending on condition. The second is a wall decoration with about the same value.

If you have an American Gun Company, New York then the gun is not stainless steel. It was made by Crescent Firearms Co. of Norwich, Conn and distributed by the H&D Folsom Co. They were produced with damascus barrels as well as fluid steel (solid) barrels of various lengths and chokes, with and without external hammers.

The T C Montgomery double barrel shotgun with double barrel hammers is valued at $75 in fait condition. In good condition its valued at $160.

If it is a fully functional (have it checked by an experienced gunsmith) gun with fluid steel barrels, back hammers or hammerless, it should bring $200+ as a shooter. If it has side hammers and twist steel barrels, it's worth $125-$150 as a mantle decoration.

I have a circa 1874 W.W. Greener double barrel shotgun. It was made in Birmingham England. It has double hammers with nice engraving. Greener shotguns are still produced today but in limited numbers.

I'm not sure of the value of your shotgun. I have a Montgomery Wards Hercules, double barrel shotgun, with external hammers. With all the research I have done it is a Stevens 217. I have been looking for a set of barrels for this gun. Can you describe your gun to me. Petter

I do not know too much about the value of such but I have one, a ten guage double barrel with external hammers that my dad bought from a pawn shop in the 1950s. I have no wish to sell but would also like to know the history .

User Avatar

The numbers probably aren't important, but the manufacturer, trade name, and/or model ID are before we can give you any information. Is it a muzzle-loading or breech-loading gun? And are the hammers behind the barrels or mounted on the sides?

Crescent Fire Arms Co. and Crescent-Davis Arms Corp. They made the gun with only Smithsonian stamped on it in both single & double barrel and in several gauges

as long as there are no cracks in the barrel, yes. it simply means not to shoot slugs thru the barrel.
