I was informed that' some Morsel shotguns were made by Navy Arms Co.
Turn of the century
Eastern Arms Co. was the trade name placed on inexpensive shotguns and revolvers made for Sears. The Sears part numbers 101.XXX were made Savage/Stevens although the 101.18 isn't listed on the site I visited. You may be able to match your model using a gun values book for the photos or going to the Numrich web site (gunpartscorp.com) and looking at the Savage/Stevens pictures.
American Arms imported Spanish shotguns manufactured by Zabala Hermanos, Lanber, and Indesal. Italian shotguns were also imported and mfg. by Stefano Fausti (Models Silver, Waterfowl, and Turkey Special).
Chances are it was made by HD Folsom or Crescent.

Beebe shotguns were made by one of two two manufacturers. Harrington & Richardson Arms Company made them from 1871 to about 1975. Hopkins & Allen made shotguns from 1868 to 1915.

Delphian Arms Co shotguns distributed H&D Folsom Sporting Goods were either manufactured by Crescent Arms Co (Norwich, CN, 1892-1931) or imported from Belgium. The same name was also used by Supplee-Biddle Hardware on Fulton Model shotguns manufactured by Hunter Arms Co. (Fulton, NY, 1890-1945).

Cornell Firearms Company was a trade name used by Hopkins and Allen Arms Company on hammerless shotguns. They made these shotguns from 1902 to 1916.
Ohio Valley Arms shotguns were called trade name shotguns and were made by Crescent Arms. Crescent arms made guns from 1892 to 1931 and would put anyones company name on the gun if they purchased at least 12 of them and paid for the die with their name on it.
'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.
Knickerbocker was a house brand name for Crescent Arms shotguns distributed by HD Folsom. All you can know for sure is that it was made before 1915.

Some of the later rifles and shotguns have been imported. Most appear to be made in the US.

Doubt it. Eastern Arms was a trade name and not an actual manufacturer. It is possible that some guns marked Eastern Arms Co were manufactured by Remington for Sears Roebuck.
FN is the abbreviation for Fabrique Nationale Arms Co. of Herstal, Belgium. They made most of the A-5 shotguns and Superposed shotguns for Browning USA.
