Default Can anyone ID this shotgun?

The only thing I know about it is it says "Royal Ejector" on one side. Other than that, here are a few pics.





The only other royal ejector I've heard of is a Holland and Holland (big $$$), pretty sure this isn't one...

Name was also used by Grulla from Spain, and Sauer.

Have seen that little flip latch before, but can't remember just where. Possibly Crescent, H&D Folsom?

Although I'm no expert I would tend to agree that it is a crescent. They made a ton of cheap shotguns and u could order them with any name u wanted on the side. This was back in the days of going to a general store and ordering out of a catalog. Some of the really big stores would order a few hundred with there name on them. I have worked on a couple that looked very similar to that. But I could be wrong.

Default Royal Ejector

Sorry about the two-year delay in answering your question. I'm a newbie here; just saw your post five minutes ago. Afraid I cannot identify your "Royal Ejector" shotgun, but I have one that's identical to the pics you posted. Used to belong to my great-aunt, who lived on a farm in south-central Maryland with no running water or electricity. The shotgun lived behind the door to the North Porch and was always loaded. Don't know exactly how old it is, but my earliest memory of the gun is from about 1938, and I'm pretty sure it was nowhere near new even then.
