Item Description: Translate description
10 Ga., 11 1/2” barrel with a lightly oxidized bore. The barrel itself is a tarnished ochre patina with a few dings here and there, most notably at the breech, but with the makers marking still mostly present; the cascabel too with minor impact marks. All of the brass hardware is intact and is the same dull ochre patina, the elevation screw is iron. The mahogany carriage rates very good to fine showing an old revarnish many years ago, now nicely oxidized with some minor dings and handling marks, the rear showing a couple scuffs. This early example features a right-side lever which withdraws, freeing the breech to withdraw straight back and pivot left for loading. The shell extractor is missing from the left side of the breechblock but a replacement should be easy to fashion. Once closed, these early cannon used a trip-hammer style of ignition, rather than the later spring-loaded striker normally seen. The breech does have a slight bit of play but overall the mechanism seems as though it would function fine. The lanyard passes from the bottom of the pivot through an eyelet on the rear of the bottom stretcher. Overall a very nice, still very usable, early Strong cannon. (37025-10)

Estimate: 2000 - 2500
