Winchester Model M-98 Vintage 10 Guage Breech Loading Signal Cannon (1901-1910):
This piece was given to a gentlemen as a gift over 50 years ago.He passed away 30 years ago and it was boxed up and packed away. I am helping a friend, so putting this out for offer. The only info we have is that what we have looked up and learned ourselves. The barrel has the words "Not for Ball" stamped on it. The Barrel is 12 " long and the overall length of the entire piece is about 17 inches and stand about 7 1/2 inches tall and 7 'inches wide. The cannon weighs about 15 lbs. There is a number stamped on the bottom of the barrel and the Trunion which is 509. THE barrel measures the 1 1/4 inch at that opening. The back side of the barrel says "MADE IN USA WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO.NEW HAVEN CONN PATENTED AUGUST 20,1901 10GA THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BARREL SAYS "WINCHESTER TRADE MARK We have never sold anything like this before...so please bear with us and be patient with us. We will happily answer any and all questions as best we can. My neighbor too a look and tells us that that the cannon looks like it was in very good shape and he did not see any cracks or missing parts and looks all original to all of us. We have no idea if this was fired or when or how. Just an amazing collectible and looks wonderful on my fireplace right now! We have done some research on pricing and have listed at a lower starting point. Good luck and thanks for looking. The cannon will be packed very well and shipped insured as well too.
