If this is one of the Diamond shotguns imported in the last few years, it had better be clearly visible on the receiver, but most likely it is a tradename single or double barrel sold by Shapleigh Hardware c. 1890-1945. These were made by a variety of US and Belgian manufacturers. Very few will have serial numbers and there will be no records for any that do.

What is the brand and model for a double barrel rabbit ear shotgun with the marking S H Co. This is a very old gun with wire barrels?

Simmons Hardware Company used the "SH Co" logo . Crescent Fire Arms used various names for "house brand" shotguns and this may be one of them. They used other companies to make shotguns for them. Hartford Arms actually made the guns for both Simmons and Shapleigh Hardware. (Shapleigh bought out Simmons Hardware in 1940) So S.H. Co would be a house brand name made by Hartford under a Crescent contract. Hartford Arms & Equipment made guns from 1925 to 1932 and was bought out by High Standard Co in 1932. Crescent was bought out by J. Stevens Arms around 1930, and they continued to make "house brand" guns for several years.

Where can you find information about a 410 single barrel shotgun made by Diamond Arms Co St Louis and marked 410 bore or 12 mm high pressure one piece barrel on top of the barrel?

Diamond Arms was a trade name used by Shapleigh Hardware Co of St Louis from the late 1800s to about 1950. The guns were made by G. B. Crandall, Harrington & Richardson, Hopkins & Allen Arms, J. Stevens Arms Co, and probably a few others. A 410 single shot is most likely a Stevens product. If that statement about one piece barrel actually says "barrel and lug forged in one piece" it is a Stevens. If it says "barrel and lug forged in one" (exactly the same except no "piece") it is by Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works.
