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.

A00099 - Half section of a 12pdr Bormann ball with bullets for case shot

Item Number: F00099

Item Title: Half section of a 12pdr Bormann ball with bullets for case shot

Price: $285

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US/CS

Type: Spherical case shot

Size: 12pdr

Sabot:

Fuse: Bormann time fuse (missing)

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 35

Location Recovered: Spanish Fort, AL

Description:Incredibly tough to find case shot with bullets inside instead of balls. You see these in Wright fused shells, but they are very rare in Bormann balls that actually got used in the war. I got over 100 12pdr balls from a big collection out of the Spanish Fort area of Alabama and only 3 had bullets inside.
