I have an old SXS with the only marking is Newport with a star N underneath. I've managed to figure out it is a trade name gun by Crescent Arms but I can't match it to a year or model.

The SN of 41109 is stamped in 3 places

The Newport line was sold by Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co., Chicago and likely other retailers

There is an estimated DOM chart here
https://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewto ... 5&t=308330

I believe it is a “Crescent Gun No. 6 Peerless” (without cocking indicators) made c. 1916 to 1925.

The No. 60 “Empire” was introduced in 1925, with a “snap-on” FE.
