12 Pounder or 1 Pounder

This basic cannon design was the norm for more than a century. On ship or land the wooden carriage was strong and durable.

These cannons were rated by the weight of the shot they fired and could be made in any size from 1 to 64 pounders, with 12 pounders being one of the most common ship born designs.

So what size of shot did this real piece fire?

Whoa, Therri has discovered a 1 pounder in the convenient portable size.
