Mercury Magnum 20ga SxS???

Anybody know anything about this. My Brother came into a nice double.
It says Mercury in a gold filled semi-circle around the action lever. There is a plastic pistol cap that says "ZH". The barrel says "mercury magnum" and
"3" Chamber" Beautiful french walnut and handcheckered semi-beavertail forearm. Lastly "Made in Spain" on left barrel.

The ZH would seem to indicate that this gun was made by Zabala Hermanos.

If you pull the forearm off and look at the water table where all of the proof marks, etc are, and go to this site:
http://personales.jet.es/rafa/b_punzones.html

you might be able to tell when it was made, what the chokes are, etc.

Here's another link with a little more info:
