Made by Crescent for Fred Bifflar & Co., Chicago IL.. Crescent (Norwich, Conn. 1892) was purchased by H&D Folsom in 1893 and assimliated into Stevens Arms and Tool in 1926. Stevens became a subsidiary of Savage in 1920. Elgin was one of a couple dozen trades names marked on single and double bbl shotguns.
