The plum color is pretty common on older steel frames. Look at the loading gate on older Ruger single actions for an example. My Riversides are a cut above the average Crescent. Riverside was a stand alone company before being bought out by Stevens. I'm thinking Savage bought out Crescent in the late 30's. I'd measure the chambers and if they're chambered for 2 3/4 shells the steel will be good. Remember tho chamber length for 2 3/4 will be longer than 2 3/4 because chambers are measured with fired shells. The only problem I see is the forcing cone will be cut for roll crimped shells and it may not pattern well with star crimped shells.
