It is a shotgun not a rifle- and Crescent was bought by Savage in 1931.
Manufactured by Crescent Fire Arms, sold by Montgomery Ward.

This shotgun was probably made by Crescent, so your local gunsmith can probably find one in his parts pile. Or, if there are no missing pieces, he can repair yours.
AFAIK, there is no published sn data on Crescent Arms.
Highly unlikely you will find any. Getting them made will probably cost more than the shotgun is worth.
This trade name was used by both Crescent Fire Arms and Iver Johnson. If it is a single shot, it will be worth $35 to $75, and if a double barrel shotgun, from $100 to $250, depending on condition.
None published. Try shotgun collectors.
What information would you want? Crescent made single shotguns from 1893 to 1930. If it has a large side hammer and damascus barrels, it would almost certainly be from before 1915. If it has fluid steel barrels and a center hammer (or is hammerless) then sometime after 1903.
See link below for the picture:
Serial numbers were not required before 1968. Check the barrel and receiver.
