Had to do a bit of a search. Not sure of accuracy, but will share this. “B.H.” for Benjamin Huger. The "B" in the photo is easily recognized, yet there is an "H" as well. If I understand what is written in the site linked below, unreleased/delivered cannons may have had "B.H." markings for cannons destine for Virginia? (reference the text following the photo with the caption "Muzzle of Gun."
I may have missed where this photo was captured.
