This fantastic piece is complete with original carriage, original ammo boxes and the original paint. 

 It has a water jacket around barrel as did machine guns -  50 years later!   

 This rapid fire breech loading gun was far advanced for its time. 

 On a scale of one to ten we would rate this as a ten in rarity, collectors value, and as an investment.

 Rock Island Auction which sales high end antique firearms sold two confederate cannons about three years ago.

They both were the type widely used during the Civil War and numerous pieces were manufactured and survive today.

Ours is much rarer than either of one of these cannons that were sold at the recent sale.

        

Priced at well below its wholesale market value at: $69,500 US$!

Note: We are currently researching this cannon and the history of its use during the battle for Island No. 10. and the Battle of Belmont.

Additional Information

Street, Hungerford & Company

Located in Memphis, Tennessee, the foundry of Street, Hungerford & Company, operated by Anthony S. Street and Fayette H. Hungerford, employed nearly 100 hands in the production of wagons, railroad cars, plows, and iron castings. Sensing the oncoming war, Street and Hungerford converted their business to cannon and munitions production. Prior to the war, the foundry produced a wide variety of ordinance. After the firing on Fort Sumter, activities were enlarged to include the casting of 6-pound cannon. Street, Hungerford & Company's cannon casting later grew to include Hughes' guns (A small breechloader firing a one-pound ball six to eight times a minute), Parrott guns, and a few heavy guns.

The firm's prior production of a variety of wood products made for an easy transition to the manufacture of gun carriages. The firm produced a large number of such carriages, some of which were made for the guns cast at the nearby Quinby & Robinson plant. There are no known surviving cannon!
