looking to date shotgun

Have a .410 H&R sing/shot Patent Feb. 27, 1900 that I'm trying to date.
Anyone know of a site that I can enter the SN and get the date of manufacture? My father bought me the gun used in 1954 for $15, and I spent several years shooting and missing many a squirrel and rabbit before I graduated to a 12 ga. My best guess is that it was made around 1910-15, gathered from what sketchy info I have read.

Would appreciate any shared knowledge on the subject.

Read the title and thought this was going to be about a late nite dinner, bottle of wine and maybe a gunshow. Sorry I can not help but welcome to the site and I am sure someone will be along shortly to help.

AFAIK, H&R didn't introduce a .410 until after WWI.

Dude what will the wife think? You're suppose to keep these things on the down low!
Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you want.
