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.
Yes in 1860 Stevens made a double barrel, all steel barrel and its has external hammers.
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.
It is worth what ever the market will bear.
I HAVE A LIST OF GUNMAKERS ,CRESCENT DID NOT MAKE A RICHMOND.THEY DID MAKE A RICHLAND , FOR A HARDWARE STORE BYTHAT NAME. IF MY LIST IS CORRECT,
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.
I have a Henry Arms double barrel shotgun and am trying to find information on it. I have heard that it might have been produced in the 1800's. Serial # 55578 Thank you for any information you can give me.
80 years plus or minus...
The value depends on the condition of the gun. The price can be anywhere from 50 dollars to 150 dollars.
What are the markings on the gun? email@example.com
No known sn data published. Most likely from turn of the century.

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.
== == Acme Arms Company was a tradename used by the J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company on pistols and shotguns produced for the Cornwall Hardware Co. of New York. They had a double barrel 12 ga. with external hammers. The shotgun is worth anywhere from $75 to $350 depending on the condition.
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.
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 .
