This is a one spectacular piece of Civil War artillery! It is an original pendulum sighting devise for the 12# cannon known to collectors as the Napoleon cannon. This piece mounted into the hooks on the back side of the cannon. It pivoted on the shoulders of the slide device. This allowed the cannoneer to get a level reading even on uneven ground. It was a very important tool for the artillerymen of the Civil War for getting the elevation correct for firing. This one has everything intact just as it should be. The lower portion of the scale has the crystal clear arsenal mark that reads "12 Pdr. LIGHT GUN (NAPOLEON) U.S. WATERVLIET ARSENAL”. The brass of the sight has a thick dark mustard patination all over with a superb look. As if that wasn’t enough it has the original carrying pouch still present. You can see the indentation where it was carried for the years by the gunner. The pouch still has the original shoulder sling present and it is also complete. About 10 years ago I sold this treasure to Country Music legend, Hank Williams, Jr. He has displayed it with his Napoleon and has just decided to let it go. Here is your chance to own the best from a legendary collection. You will never have to worry about upgrading this set of items!
