I chased a Diana Grade Superposed at a police auction a few years ago. It was the O/U version of the gun in the OP.
It didn't go as cheaply as I was hoping.

In MACV SOG, some RT's cut an M-79 down and carried it on a lanyard around the neck with a flechette round in it. They called it an "ambush buster." I always thought it was kind of silly.

This is a small and undated image from the Fulton Historical Society, of an unknown location store front with a L.C. Smith display. The gun 2nd from the bottom looks to have a Jostam Anti-Flinch pad so the image would be after 1915-1916.
The top gun on the rack is clearly a Smith, with an Ithaca Auto & Burglar type grip. Barrel length can not be determined.

I've never seen the gun, nor any advertisements or catalog listings

I've handled an Ithaca 20ga Auto and Burglar. A friend I can't remember now had it, a family inheritance. No ticket he knew of. I wouldn't want to shoot it...Geo

I once cut a 20ga. single shot down to 18.5 for a guy, he kept it on his boat to the coup de grace to sharks before bringing onboard.

Upper of the 2 pictured is a later NID-earlier as the cocking pins are shown- the lower one is Flues series.. Wonder how many of these had stock cracking issues?? RWTF

In the movie Tombstone- ever notice the gunfight scene at the OK Corral- Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday, takes the double barrel hammer shotgun and fires 3-count 'em- 3 shots from that two-holer before he even breaks it open to reload- and he gets off his third shot w/o cocking back either of the 2 hammers-- Would have liked to be a Hollywood movie armorer- at least for a while.

For what it's worth, back in the 80s there were quite a few unfinished Parker barrels around. They had no marking as to type of steel, just the unfinished weight
stamped on the flats. I have no idea where they originated from but would assume they came from Remington. They were very raw, unchoked with lots of cleanup of solder.
