DIAMOND ARMS CO was a tradename used by Shapleigh Hardware in St Louis for many years. The guns have been made by many different manufacturers over the years and no serial number records exist. Value is uniformly under $100.
There is no way to tell the gauge from the serial number, and that may not even be a true serial number. Diamond Arms were made by several manufacturers for distribution by the Shapleigh Hardware Company of St Louis between the 1880s and 1940s. Anyone familiar with shotguns should be able to determine the gauge by looking at the gun, but to find the proper ammunition you should also have a gunsmith measure the length of the chamber.
Diamond Arms shotguns were made by several manufacturers, but if the rest of the patent date is '13', this one was by J. Stevens Arms and retailed by Shapleigh Hardware.
Diamond Arms was a trade name used Shapleigh Hardware for guns that were actually made by Iver Johnson of Fitchburg, MA, c. 1920-1950. Prior to that, they were made by small local makers in Belgium. These were utility grade guns. Prior to 1968, serial numbers were not required on shotguns and rifles, and there are many inexpensive shotguns that have never HAD a serial number (and yes, that is legal)
Diamond Arms was a trade name used on guns distributed by Shapleigh Hardware of St Louis Missouri. Vorisek's "Shotgun Markings" identifies 7 different makers, but a few can be eliminated as they furnished Shapleigh with only double barreled guns. If the gun is marked only "Diamond Arms Co" it could have been made by Harrington & Richardson (1872-1985), Hopkins & Allen (1898-1915), or J Stevens Arms (1920-1942). The "E" on the serial number indicate H&R manufacture in 1944, but I would not expect the "N" following it.

"What is the value of a Diamond Arms 12 Guage single shot dated 1893 made in St Louis Mo?"
Diamond Arms was one of the many house brand names used by Crescent Arms, which went out of business in 1932. Manufacture records have been lost, and dating is impossible. I have a Diamond Arms Company 12 gauge single shot. The serial number is QT 585. My dad purchased it in 1923. I thought that he ordered it from a Montgomery Ward company catalog. Looking at some of the other postings make me believe it may have been Sears & Roebuck. In any case my shotgun should have been manufactured somewhere near or in 1923.
You probably won't find a serial number on it, and if you do, it won't help you determine the age. This name was used by Crescent Fire Arms (1893-1930), WH Davenport Arms (1891-1910), and J. Stevens Arms (1920-c. 1948) on guns made for Shapleigh Hardware of St Louis (1868-present).

What is your serial number?
