Please give me your thoughts as what it was used for.... Note the pintle hook large pin. Looks to have some grey paint on the wheels & frame. Picture enclosed. I have a chance to buy it ,any help on value would be welcome

Wish I could help pintel, all I can say is it's a limber as far as I know. As I said in this thread my knowledge on artillery is fairly limited and I have to look a lot of stuff up. The site I like to visit the most has it fitting your description.

No idea what the value is, but cool looking antique. Is it Civil War? I don't know but find it amazing how people still find such items tucked away. Good luck with your explorations, and welcome.

Our Limber for an 1862 3 Inch Ordnance Rifle doesn't have the (for lack of better term) "rivets" on the wheel....Also, axle looks different.....What size are the wheels??.....My guess (just a guess) is that this post-dates the Civil War.....
