What is the value of Diamond Arms shotguns?
Sort of asking what a flat-head Ford is worth. I can guess that it is either a single or double barrel break action and in NRA Good condition. A single-shot would normally retail for about $50-$75 and a double $125-$150, but apparently .410's are getting popular with both shooters and collectors, so you may be able to double those prices.
Probably about $50-$75.

Diamond Arms Co. shotguns were made by the Crescent Firearms Manufacturing Company of Norwich Conn. They made good quality inexpensive single and double barrel shotguns from 1892 until they were bought out by the J Stevens Company in 1930.

Crescent produced huge numbers of "Hardware Guns", meaning that a run of guns would be marked specifically…

Diamond Arms Company: Trade name used by the Shapleigh Hardware Company of St. Louis, Missouri on shotguns they retailed. Probably manufactured by J. Stevens Arms, but possibly a Belgian import. Look for an oval around "ELG*". If it has it, it is Belgian, but most of these imports stopped coming over when WWI started.
