I know Xinhua is a news agency, but does it have any other significance?

Unusual is an understatement. Marked "Xinhua" in the western alphabet, English writing in another area. I'm guessing that it's a homemade piece from somewhere around 1896, made from pieces of different guns, probably in one of the areas where the British held sway. That's my guess.

Thank you for your suggestion.But I think "xinhua" is the other country's word except Chinese.
