Blunderbuss cannon for comments

Is this the muzzle style you can call "trumpet" ?
Would it be possible to ID its origin by looking at its (only) mark on the bottom ? What would this 8 over 8 mean ?
Thanks for some help .

Furthermore ...

If i were to consider one symbol as an F, i would then take another one also as an F. In fact, it looks (to me) as if the (pseudo?) inscription is abundant in pairs ... and hardly a word :o.
