Hi r3t8k5.....welcome to TFF.
As I stated in the post above, Crescent went out of business in 1931, and AFIK, no records exist of serial #s to manufacture date of their guns.
Crescent was best known for producing “house brand” shotguns. These were made for and sold by a variety of hardware companies, mail order stores, retailers and distributors. More than 200 names are known or thought to have been used on shotguns produced by Crescent. In 1929 N. R. Davis Firearms Co. merged with Crescent to become Davis-Crescent Arms Co. H & D Folsom was a New York importer and distributor of firearms from about 1890 to 1930, at which time they merged with the Davis-Crescent Arms Co. In 1931 the depression forced the sale of Davis-Crescent to the Stevens Arms Co., which assembled the remaining parts and sold them under the Stevens name.
However, if your Crescent-made shotgun has external hammers, chances are that it was made pre-1910, during the black-powder era and should NOT
be used with modern smokless powder shotgun rounds.
If you are considering shooting it, take it to a good shotgun gunsmith and get his opinion as to it's condition, whether or not it's safe to shoot, and what type of shells to use.....and PLEASE, don't try to shoot it until you've done this.
