    Please tell me this is a real colonial toy cannon.

    Found this amazing buckle. Any info on the age or anything is appreciated. And is this a colonial toy cannon?

    Researched the lion head buckle and appears to be 18th century british sword sling buckle or similar

    My unprofessional opinion says it looks like one, so I hope it is for your sake. Very nice find.

    Anyway,,,

    I do not believe this is a "toy cannon" upon initial looksee... NOW...I DID NOT research this... but heck here it is anyway...

    I think...

    Clock key.

    Perhaps even broken.... but ?

    So there it is... take it or leave it. heh
    I appreciate your opinion, i just hope your wrong... Haha. There are cast lines on both sides and a little place on the back where you would think a fuse would go. Maybe someone who knows for sure will chime in
