Default Help with Proof Marks on Model Cannon

Hi Everyone,

Can someone please help me ID what appears to be proof or maker's marks on the base of this small model cannon? They appear to be 2 'Oak Leaves' at each side of the stamped numbers.

The cannon I believe I've ID the type as a 15th C. Hussite Houfnice (Howitzer)???? Given its material (iron and wood) and detailed hand-made workmanship, my guess is it dates to the 19th C. ?????

Overall Size is Approx: 12 x 6 x 4-1/4 inches.
Cannon Size Approx: 4 x 1-1/4 inches.
Bore Approx: 5/8 inch.

Thank you all in advance for your time and thoughts.

P.S. - my apologies for the poor images, best I could do for now.

Kind regards
