Hi Rex,
You have a house branded shotgun that was made either Crescent Fire Arms Company of Norwich, CT or Iver Johnson's Arms & Cycle Works of Fitchberg, MA. It was sold by the Hibbard Spencer Bartlett Company of Chicago,IL, a large wholesale hardware and sporting goods dealer. I can not tell you which company made yours without seeing it. These utility grade shotguns often referred to as hardware guns as they were sold at hardware stores. Its worth $75 to $150 depending exact condition. You might want join its free. Its a place for all things 16 gauge.
