The serial number, 19522, would place it long before the Invincible. While there is no production card for 19522, those on either side of it shipped in
May 1912. It may have been a second or something pulled from inventory and made up for the Panama - Pacific International Exposition in 1915 --

DIANA is somewhat similar to Billy Gough's personal trap gun, 20175, which cards as an A-Grade for W.H. Gough in December 1912.

Interesting that DIANA has the rebates and fancy-back, which first show up on some of the SPECIALs Gough did for the Panama - Pacific International Exposition, see Tom Kidd's article in The Double Gun Journal, Volume Eleven, Issue 2.

Dave, a decade of waiting is a bit of overkill for waiting for a short barrel exemption from ATF. They are actually pretty liberal about such things.

All I did was write a letter supporting the request, probably sometime in the 1990s as I recall. If there was a decade of waiting it was the owner, at the time, to decide to make the request.

Funny; 20175 doesn't look anything like either of the 2 very nice A grades I saw at Hausmann's over the weekend!!
