I found two cannons on pedestals in a Pennsylvania campground, but they are not like anything I've seen. Owner swears they are real and were found buried in a barn. It appears to be a smoothbore and about 3" in diameter. Overall length is about 70". Could find no markings, but they have been painted many times. Help????? 20180711_144131.jpg 20180711_144221.jpg 20180711_144232.jpg 20180711_142454.jpg

The profile looks like a model 1841 but the bore doesn't match those. Its not a 3 inch field gun as its not rifled.

Did the owner say the guns were "real" or did he say they were "original"??.....There is a BIG difference because, yes, they ARE "real" (as in they can be seen, touched, etc), BUT they may or may not be "original" from a specific time period.
