Description:
Because this tube is so heavily oxidized, its decorative mouldings are only partially visible. Further, its vent hole appears to have been plugged and/or is rusted over. Its muzzle is plugged by a block of wood and is broken off from the rest of the tube just behind the muzzle swale. However, it has been reattached. The bore diameter is 3".
