36” .65 caliber barrel, tapered through its length. The breech sleeved. Wood stock and primitive percussion lock. Dane guns were both produced in Europe from surplus/obsolete parts and made in West Africa, either entirely or with some European parts. This example mounts a modified European barrel with the balance African made. Poor quality notwithstanding, they were luxury and prestige items, affordable by the few who were able to generate significant financial resources, primarily through the slave trade. First example we have offered in thirty years!
