Just posted some nice items out of the South Carolina museum group I brought back yesterday. This may well be our last postings before the Wheaton Show next weekend (4/29) and Mansfield the week after (5/6-7). We hope to see you at one or both of the shows. We will have anice cselection of canister rounds at Mansfield. These are very difficult to ship safely so not currently listed here.

We continue to have occasional issues with emails sent using the buy me button on individual listings. If you do not receive a response back quickly, please email or call us directly via the information provided under the contacts tab. Thank you.

Item Number: A00812

Item Title: Rare Confederate 12pdr sideloader with Bormann fuse underplug sideplug

Price: $550

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Case shot shell

Size: 12pdr

Sabot:

Fuse: Copper time fuse adapter (unscrews)

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 43

Location Recovered: Petersburg

Description:Rare late war type of 12pdr case shot. I think most of these were made at the Eagle Machine Works of Richmond and many are stamped AR for the proprietor's initials (Adolphus Rahm). I do not see the letters stamped on this one, but there is no doubt the brass underplug is original to the shell. Has light period striations from having been fired. The copper time fuse adapter unscrews which is a nice plus. D&G list this as a rarity 8+ shell.
