Found this on a shotgun blog....hope it helps:

You have what I call a "Trade Brand Name" shotgun. That is a shotgun made by a major maker for and sold by a wholesaler or retailer who chose the name to go on the gun. By my definition the guns were made before 1940. Guns with the name KEYSTONE ARMS CO were made by either the W.H. Davenport Arms Co or the Hunter Arms co and they were made for and sold by the E. K. Tryon Jr. & Co of Philadelphia,PA. The same company used the names (just plain) KEYSTONE and KEYSTONE EJECTOR. These were inexpensive (cheap) shotguns selling for $15 to $25 when new. They were designed for the ammunition in use at the time which was either black powder or early low pressure smokeless powder and they have shorter chambers than more modern guns. The were not designed got more modern high pressure smokeless powder, three inch magnum shells or steel shot. They can still be fired with appropriate ammunition if in good condition. Have a good gunsmith check the gun out before attempting to shoot it. Value? The value of one of these old guns will depend on its condition, the amount of original finish remaining on the metal and the wood as well as the mechanical condition. Value can range from a high of $150 for one that appears to have come out of the factory yesterday afternoon to less than $10 for a rusty rotten incomplete piece of junk fit only for a fireplace poker.

I love the new picture.
If this guest will use your name again, you can be real bad and ban him. I think there were enough polite requests from your side.

Miss Jade:
I think it's a lovely picture too, and we'll see if my buddies here still pick on my hat of figure out they better shut up about it or I'll get me a Mini Pearl hat and post that one....

As a Moderator, I don't have the capabilities to band someone from the site and not to sure I would do that unless he continues to use my user name. I just don't want people thinking I said something, when I didn't. I will take blame for my own big mouth but not someone else's.... Know what I mean, Girlfriend?

Oh, Think I found my new acoustic a Gibson Heritage 1973 in near Mint Condition with custom hard case for $1,500.00 USD in Wisconsin next door to Minnesota where I'm working now at the Nuke Plant. Time will tell.... I'll post pictures on that Other Site....

I was sure you were an admin already. OK, let me know if that guest posts again with your name.
I guess this new guitar will worth the time you had to spend in the cold all these last months. I bet Ellen doesn't think it's that great

It's Ellen "The Bonehead" Miss Jade, not Allen. I'm not a transistor.... Yes, she did for the price I paid and for what it's actually worth....

So, let me see if I got it straight. Ellen is a woman's name, Allen is a man's name? In Hebrew it is written the same.

You are correct.... Ellen is a woman, or at least that is what I believe her to be but sometimes I think she's an alien, not of this world. Well, in most cases anywho.
