The marking is "Cruso", the 'c' is part of the rooster. Cruso is a brand used by Hibbard, Spencer, and Bartlett, a Chicago based wholesale hardware house. They sold products to local hardware retailers. The Cruso guns were contracted by HSB to companies like Crescent, Stevens, Savage, etc, who made inexpensive firearms, usually shotguns, for other companies. These guns should be inspected by a gunsmith before attempting to shoot them. Modern ammunition has hotter powder than these guns were made for which could make them dangerous to shoot.

HSB made a variety of objects with the Cruso name on them including padlocks, tools, tinware, livestock supplies, sporting goods, and the list goes on and on..

Other brands used by HSB are OVB (Our Very Best), Rev-O-Noc, True Value, Il-A-Noy, and others.

HSB products are somewhat collectible. thckk.org is a place to start.

Break open the action and it should be engraved on the metal that is normally unseen when the action is close, that or it should be on the barrel. If the chokes are removable then it should be engraved on those as well.

No, the Mossberg 395 is a bolt action shotgun, NOT a semi-Automatic shotgun. It is a fine bolt action though.

Providing serial number information has been published, you look it up.

Obviously French, but not much else. The proofmarks under the barrel and type of action will help date the shotgun.

The value of a 410 Mossberg Model 183T bolt action shotgun is between $150 and $300. The overall condition of the shotgun plays a large part in its value.
