I can't find the remnants of any markings. I think it would show with the condition of the steel.

I also have to say, the metal work on it just seems older than...

Congrats Dirk!

You might try outside pictures. In the shade if the sun is super bright. I'll be happy to edit your pics for you also.

Can someone educate us on the history of "the green man"?

Similar but much smaller signal cannons from the same foundry recently sold at auction. It appears the roman numerals in front of the touch holes are a sizing mark. And not representing the poundage...

Also pics of the muzzles?

I still have a lot to learn about styles and typeology but I...

Thanks for the similar examples!

It seems there are two very distinct types. Both perfectly represented in Broadaxe's post. Do we know anything about the differences? Difference in area of origin...
