    Yours was a "trade name" utility shotgun made for the EC Simmons Hardware Company of St. Louis, Mo. between 1898-1915. Although most were made by Crescent-Davis, your patent dates indicate it was made by Hopkins & Allen. These don't carry much collector value and rarely bring more than $150 unless in exceptional condition.

    Thanks for the info. I am trying to find a stock as this one was broken and I just want it to shoot some times. Like old shotguns. Got it from an old friend.
