Little help for a reader.

I got an email this morning from Jon, who asks for help identifying this gun from the Battleship Cove, Fall River, Massachusetts, museum. I believe I know what it is, I thought I'd just throw it out here in case someone else would like to try to figure it out. I'll narrow it down for you - US Navy or US Army Coast Defense, caliber is in the 3.5-6 inch range.

The same view, higher res.

Second view, from the rear (breech construction makes a difference).

I suppose a loyal reader in the same area code as Battleship Cove *could* just call and ask... or visit!
