This gun has suffered severely from polishing. As a result nearly all surface markings have been obliterated. The first reinforce bears the crowned VR monogram. The muzzle has a dispart patch which serves as a foresight. The left trunnion is inscribed with the date 1859. The right trunnion bears the number of the piece F14 DXXXII which is repeated on the underside in Arabic numerals. The vent has been copper bushed and the second reinforce bears a Broad Arrow
