I just looked at a Henry Leigh double hammer gun in 10ga with laminated barrels. Anyone familiar with these? It was at a gun show, so I did not get a chance to really look it over. Thanks for any help.

A couple of these have shown up. Dixie Gunworks had a 10ga like you describe with Bernard pattern damascus. Take the barrels off and turn them over. There should be some proof marks, most likely Belgian. You can look them up here:

The proof marks will at least put near a date of manufacture. It does sound like a gun made for a hardware store or catalog house.
