Sorry, this item is no longer available!



Item Number: F00183

Item Title: Nice Bormann Common Shell Half

Price: $160

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Cannon Ball

Size: 12 Pounder (4.62 Caliber)

Sabot: Wood Cup (Missing)

Fuse: Bormann Time Fuse

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 35

Location Recovered: Honey Hill, SC

Description:Here we have a very good display of a 12 Pounder Bormann common shell with the Bormann fuse and iron underplug. The gasket is visible between the fuse and underplug. Iron is decent and the fuse is better than most that get cut. Of interest here is the shell is still packed with its powder charge which had solidified. it is hard as a rock and makes for a great display. The shell was run through electrolysis before being cut so it is a nice solid display.
