Noble Brothers and Company of Rome, Georgia, produced at least twenty-two 6-pounders guns, fifteen of cast iron and seven of bronze. There is also evidence because of surviving pieces that Noble Bros. using the same pattern produced 3-inch rifles in cast iron. One distinguishing characteristic of Noble Brothers tubes is a short heavy neck and flattened ball suggesting an empty spool of thread. This is truly a streamline looking tube with a very distinguishing look that says “I’m Confederate!” We make this tube in all forms mentioned above.
