I need some help identifying a shotgun

It is a 410 S by S with "Made in Spain" and "Modelo Amino" on the barrel.

The marks on the inside are either an "X" or crossed swords inside a shield with a knights helmet on top. Next to that is what apear to be a pair of crossed rifles with the #2 in the center. Next to that are the letters "BP" over an oval circle and all inside a shield

The weapon is good condition with no problems with the stock or reciever

Any help would be much appreciated :)

The "X" mark with the knight's head is the Eibar proof house mark. Eibar is a city/region in Spain were many guns are produced.

The crossed guns with the number"2" is the final black powder proof at 8818psi. This mark also shows compliance with both Italian and Belgium size rules.

The oval with the "BP" is the final proof for smokless powder.

"Modelo Amino" is the name of the model, Amino.

Your gun may or may not have a makers proof mark on it. Any other clues?

R*1 means made in 1973.

ZH in a shield means made by Zabala Hermanos.
