"Eastern Arms Company 10" 20-gauge single-shot

Can anyone provide me with information regarding an Eastern Arms single-shot 20 gauge? I inherited it along with some other firearms in October. It does not have a serial number. I have looked everywhere for one. I have never heard of the Eastern Arms Company before. On the right-hand side of the receiver just above the trigger guard it has a "94B" (picture attached). I was told it might be a "Stevens 94B" but that hasn't been verified. It's in really good shape (despite the appearance on the photos). I was wondering if someone could provide me some history on this gun and perhaps a value?

Eastern Arms Company was a trade name used by Sears, Roebuck & Co. Like products bearing other Sears tradenames, the guns were actually made by several manufacturers, including Savage/Stevens and Iver Johnson.

But this one sure looks like a Stevens 94. The stamp on the side is a clue.

Jim, not only the stamp on the receiver side but the shape of the stock where it meets the receiver.

That shape/style is common across many Savage models, including the M24, 220,219, and the 94.

I know, I had one under the Stevens trademark in my long ago youth.
That was how I recognized it, the tiny stamp just an afterthought.
