Most Stevens shotguns have a model number on the right side of the receiver (5000, 5100, 3xx, 2xx). If the company name is marked "J. Stevens Arms Co", it was made after 1920 when Stevens became a division of Savage. Sometime in the 1940's the "J" was dropped. Riverside shotguns were made by Stevens. I'm not sure when they started and stopped using this name, but a Riverside hammergun should be the Model 215 which was produced from 1913-1932. The Model 215 hammergun was sold as the Springfield-Stevens from 1930-1932. On the left side of the receiver is: Springfield manufactured by J.S. Stevens Arms Company Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA Pat.

There is quite a bit of information about Springfield trapdoor rifles in Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms. Model identification is a bit difficult from the dates stamped on them - if your gun is marked 1869 on the lock, it is probably a Model 1868; if it is a Model 1869, it should have a date between 1863 and 1865.
The "Flaming Bomb" as it is called, is the Mark for the Springfield Armory at Springfield Massachusetts. In operation from 1794-1968. Guns Manufactured there were marked with the flaming bomb.
Known as "Hardware Store" guns, Savage/Springfield/Stevens made rifles marketed under the Gambles Store Pioneer label. Yours MAY be a Springfield model 86. I happen to have one marked Springfield, and one marked Pioneer Gambles Store, and they appear to be identical. As shooters, they are worth $50-100. Nice little rifles.
'1929' is going to be a patent date, not a model number. Eastern Arms Co was not an actual manufacturer, it was a brand name used by Sears on guns they marketed, generally made by the Stevens Arms Co. Value is strictly based on its usability as a shooter, and single-barrel 16ga shotguns will generally sell for less than $100. 1929 is a model number marked on Stevens/Springfield shotguns.
