I have to preface this with "wow man, this site has a TON of information!". I've spent days reading, learning, and researching.
Question today - I've recently inherited a Newport Model CN and I don't believe I've seen anything yet with "E" series. I'll try to link pics but I'm a newbie on here so please bear with me.
Things I know/markings:
Newport Model CN 20 Gauge
Double barrel, side by side
Image
Image
Image

"NEWPORT MODEL CN"
Image

"SELECTED FORGED STEEL"
"PROOF TESTED 20 GAUGE"
Image

"E66466" (several different places - all match)
Image
Image
Image

random "E"
random "3"
Image

random "7" along with some type of proof mark? Test mark?
Image

random "J"
Image

I'm sure every stamp means something, but I'm not sure what. I'm really just looking to date this firearm as value doesn't mean much since I'll probably just work on cleaning it up and trying to refresh the metal as much as I can. Stock and forearm aren't really that bad. It will stay in the family for many more generations to come.

Thanks for any info guys!

Welcome to SGW ! ! {hs#

Your Newport Model CN shotgun is what's known as a "private label" gun manufactured by the Crescent Shotgun Co (Connecticut).

Here's the skinny on them from a fellow board member:

No one left alive today knows either. The gun is a "Trade Branded" version of the J. Stevens Arms Co.'s Springfield Arms Co. No. 311 --

from some time between 1929 and WW-II.

The J. Stevens Arms Co. records were destroyed in a fire, many say because of charges of war profiteering.
