Description:Tin sabot straps probably for 32pdr cannon balls by judge of their size and length. I got a bundle of these straps that were on two boxcars of a Confederate supply train that was burned by the 54th Mass Colored Infantry under Col. Shaw. The boxcars were burned on a bridge on the Wilmington-Manchester Railroad in South Carolina.

The straps are fragile and in a couple places I have had to re-connect them using JB Weld. Last picture shown is how they were used to hold a cannon ball on its wooden sabot. Obviously, that photograph is for illustrative purposes only.
