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...
